The Principles

The Board of Trustees of Torbay School will, as far as it can, ensure that this scheme

b) reflects the desirability of students being able to attend a reasonably convenient school
c) enables the Secretary to make reasonable use of the existing network of schools, by taking into account the location and capacity of other schools that are reasonably convenient schools for students in the general area served by the school;
and to the extent that it is reasonable and practical to do so without "derogating" (= detracting) from the principles above
d) enables students to attend a school of their choice.
