Determined school admission arrangements 2016-17
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.
