School Charging

In accordance with the law, the school does not charge for admission, education which takes place during school hours, education which forms part of the National Curriculum, materials, books and equipment or visits taking place in school time.

Charges can be made for visits or activities during school holidays, totally outside school hours, or more than 50% of the time outside school hours. The restrictions that are placed upon charging for school activities do not prevent the school from asking for voluntary contributions.  Without these voluntary contributions many activities that are the norm for this school may not be possible.


You do have a right to appeal to an independent panel for a place at our school and can find an appeals form and advice notes below. The form should be completed and returned to Mrs Sharpe at the school (


Appeals for admissions into Year 7 September 2022 -2023 must be returned to Bowland High for the attention of Mrs J Sharpe by Friday 18th March 2022.
