Determined Admissions Arrangements September 2022-23

Every school is required by law to set their admission arrangements (policy) which govern how places are offered to students. Within the policies are criteria that the schools use in determining the order of priority for allocating places. If a school decides they are changing the way they offer places, they are required to undertake consultation a year before the change becomes effective. Also, schools are required to undertake consultation every 7-year period even where no changes are required.

We consulted on our arrangements for admissions for the 2022-23 academic year on 11 December 2020, as we were at the end of our 7-year period. There were no key changes proposed to our arrangements for 2022-23, and following the end of our consultation period, the policy was agreed by the School Governors on 2 February 2021.  Please find our policy by clicking the below link:
