For current EPSB students who newly moved in or who have not pre-enrolled in another school, please email Vernon Barford School (vbarford@epsb.ca) the following information and upload supporting documents (see below).  We will contact you after reviewing the information to confirm acceptance after August 24, 2022:

Enrollment Limits:

Please be aware that Vernon Barford is an enrollment-limit school.  We will accommodate all students who live within our attendance boundaries and select Vernon Barford before the registration deadline.  While we accept students from outside our boundaries each year, we have an enrollment cap in all of our programs that cannot be exceeded.  For example, this year, we were only able to accept 70 Gifted and Talented Program students in grade 7 and do not typically accept Gifted and Talented students at grade 8 or 9 levels as students who join us in grade 7 remain with us through the end of grade 9, so the program is already full.  Also, note that the Gifted and Talented Program is a special needs program, and as such, students need to be coded appropriately by their current school if they wish to be considered for entrance.
