Consultation On Change To Admissions Criteria  

The Admissions Committee met on Tuesday 11th September 2018 and agreed to alter the admission criteria to our school for September 2020.

Government guidelines asked schools to include a section referencing children who previously looked after or in care whilst living abroad.

The amended admissions criteria is set out below as is the government advice.

Where changes are proposed to Admissions Criteria, the Admissions Authority must publicly consult on those arrangements for a minimum of 6 weeks - any comments on the changes can be directed via email to

This consultation period closed on December 10th and the governing body adopted the revised admissions criteria.
