    19 places (that is, 10% of the PAN of 196) will be available to children with a proven aptitude in football or any other sport or dance in which the College specialises (see the list of sports at note m). Aptitude will be assessed by the College Assessment Panel acting on behalf of the LA and undertaken by the College’s named partners Exercise Science Consulting Ltd, using an appropriate sporting aptitude test. In the event that the aggregate score of one or more students is equal to that of the student ranked 19 and equal or higher than the pass mark, the following criteria will be applied by the Assessment Panel to prioritise applications:

    1 Looked After Children and children who were Looked After but who immediately afterwards were adopted or made the subject of a child arrangements order or a special guardianship order.

    2 Children who are registered with a relevant professional club for further development.

    3 Children who are included in a National Governing Body Performance Programme or their equivalent.

    B) The remaining 177 places will be available to other applicants. Where the number of applications is greater than 177 the LA will use the following oversubscription criteria to prioritise applications:

    4 Looked After Children and children who were Looked After but who immediately afterwards were adopted or made the subject of a child arrangements order or a special guardianship order.

    5 Children for whom an exceptional medical or social need to attend this school is demonstrated.

    6 Children who live in our designated area, with a sibling on roll at this school when the application is made.

    7 Other children who live in our designated area.

    8 Children who live outside our designated area, with a sibling on roll at this school when the application is made.

    9 Children of members of staff employed for more than two years up to the point of application or recruited within the past two years to fill a vacancy for which there was a skills shortage.

    10 Other children.
