Admission arrangements

Admission arrangements

Admission arrangements are used to decide how places are offered.

School admissions code 2021

A variation to the determined arrangements was sought in July 2021 in response to a change to the Schools Admissions Code. The new code, Schools Admissions Code (2021), is in force from 1 September 2021.

The admission arrangements for 21/22 and 22/23 have been varied to comply with the requirements of the new School Admissions Code.

Community and voluntary controlled schools

We determine the admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools. If there are more applications for a school than there are places available the places are offered in order, according to the oversubscription criteria which you can find in the admission arrangements.

We have qualifying schemes to process the admission of children into the schools in our area:

Voluntary-aided schools and academies

The admission arrangements for voluntary-aided (church) schools and academies are determined by their governing body.

Infant and primary schools

Secondary schools

University Technical Colleges
