The Local Authority (LA) is the admitting authority for all community schools in the area.
Each child about to transfer from primary to secondary education will be invited to apply for a place at the catchment school maintained by the LA.
Parents/carers can either apply online or in writing for the catchment place or express a preference for a placement at an alternative school. Requests for a preferred placement will be granted unless to do so would prejudice the provision of efficient education or the efficient use of resources for existing students on roll.
Those parents/carers who express a preference online or in writing for a place at any school will be given priority over those who have not.
Admissions Limits – Community Schools
Availability of places is determined by reference to the school’s Admission Number. Schools must admit up to the Admission Number in the year entry and must not exceed this number.
