Coombe Wood School will reserve within its admission arrangements, 10% of its PAN for children living outside of the catchment area who will take advantage of the School's facilities and ethos.
The School defines Health Related Fitness (HRF) as the ability to reach your personal best in activities that will allow you to develop and enhance your well-being. This can be linked to activities such as the playing of sport and also in other essential life choices linked to health and well-being.
To help the School identify a child who has achieved well in a Health Related Fitness assessment and to offer them a place after which time all other admissions criteria has been applied, we need to ask that people register to take a Health Related Fitness test.
Health Related Fitness Assessments will be conducted on Tuesday 8th October 2019 and on Tuesday 15th October 2019 at Wallington County Grammar School, Croydon Road, SM6 7PH. You will be advised which date to attend. The Assessment will be administered on behalf of Folio Education Trust by an external provider. Candidates will be tested for sporting aptitude, which will assess sporting potential in areas such as speed, endurance, hand/eye coordination, and agility. This is not a test of sporting ability.
Whilst no previous experience in a particular sport is required in order to take the test, it is expected that applicants wishing to apply under this criterion have an interest in sport and would wish to participate fully in the sporting life of the School should they gain a place.
The deadline for registering interest for your child to take the Health Related Fitness Assessment is midday Monday 30th September.
IMPORTANT - if you complete a health-related fitness assessment application form you MUST select Coombe Wood School as one of your choices on the Common Application Form (CAF) - if you have not selected Coombe Wood School on the CAF then your child will not be eligible to be considered for a place under the health-related fitness criteria regardless of whether your child has taken the test. Selecting Coombe Wood School on the CAF is the responsibility of the parent/carer and not the School.
