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
