Determined admission arrangements 2015-16

If a school is oversubscribed, places are allocated in accordance with the school’s published admission criteria (also known as admission policies or admission arrangements).

The admission authority for a school or academy must set admission arrangements annually.

  • For community schools, the admission authority is the local council. 
  • For voluntary aided schools, academies, and free schools, it is the school’s governing body or academy trust.
