Reporting Extenuating Circumstances

If circumstances beyond your control have had an adverse effect on your studies; for example illness or bereavement in your family, a natural disaster or political unrest in your country, please let us know. If you have submitted an application to the School, the Admissions Selector can take these details into consideration, before a decision is made. Below is a form, which can be used to ensure we receive any relevant information relating to your situation. The document can be sent to us via email and guidance notes on completing the form have also been provided. Please note that we are unable to guarantee that disclosed extenuating circumstances will result in a more favourable decision on an application.


For applicants: Please submit within two weeks of application. We cannot guarantee to overturn an adverse decision if this form is received after this point.

For offers holders: Submit as soon as possible after the onset of the circumstances and always by the deadline below:

For offer holders studying the International Baccalaureate: Tuesday 30 June 2020
For offer holders studying A levels or any other qualification: Friday 31 July 2020

We cannot guarantee to give equal consideration to extenuating circumstances received after these deadlines.
