Do I need to bring anyone to my meeting and if so how many people can I bring? What proof is required to show I am in the catchment area? Due to the high volume of applicants that attend these meetings we ask that you are accompanied only by your parent(s)/carer(s). The parent(s)/carer(s) of Post 16 applicants do not have to attend the meeting if they do not wish to. It is mandatory for Key Stage 4 applicants to be accompanied by their parent(s)/ carer(s) in order for the interview to take place. Parents can only attend the meeting and NOT the workshop. You will be asked to supply proof of your address at some point in the application procedure (usually on enrolment day). This can take the form of a utility bill, tenancy agreement etc; the proof supplied cannot be more than three months old. We do not accept mobile phone bills. The bill should reflect the address on your application form. Please note if you are unable to supply this information it could result in your place being withdrawn. I live overseas. Can I apply? We will not accept Key Stage 4 students if their parents intend to remain abroad. Please see p.37 for more details for non UK residents. If I live out of the catchment area will I get in? Out of area places are very restricted; we can take up to 10% of students outside the catchment area. Applicants from outside the catchment area need to show unusual merit throughout each stage of the application process. Do I have to pay to attend The BRIT School? There is no charge to attend The BRIT School. Do you offer accommodation locally? We do have a list of local residents who offer rooms to be let, but parents must take responsibility for the accommodation being satisfactory and make sure that the day-to-day support for the student is in place. This applies to Post 16 students only as we will not accept applications for Key Stage 4 if the applicant will need to live independently. Please note The BRIT School does not vet these landlords.
