Determined school admission arrangements 2019-20

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.

Paper copies

Paper copies can also be obtained direct from schools (for Academies, foundation schools and voluntary aided schools) or from the council's Admissions Team for community schools.


Any person or body who considers that any maintained school or Academy's arrangements are unlawful, or not in compliance with the Code or relevant law relating to admissions, can make an objection to the Schools Adjudicator. Further information about how to object to the Schools Adjudicator is available from the GOV.UK website.

Objections must be referred to Schools Adjudicator by 15 May 2018.
