Creating a fairer Britain
Although most schools do not place terms on a person’s admission, some do and, while in some situations it may be appropriate to place terms on a person’s admission (such as the payment of fees if you are an independent school), these terms should not be discriminatory.
You should ensure that you do not offer admission to a person with a protected characteristic on terms which are less favourable than those which are or would be offered to someone without the protected characteristic. Examples of discriminatory terms may include:
A pupil who is gay is offered a place at an independent school on the condition that he hides his sexual orientation and pretends that he is straight (heterosexual). This would be unlawful sexual orientation discrimination.
