Admission Arrangements Consultation

Admissions 2025-26 - Proposed Changes


Rationale for the change:

Having reviewed our admissions policies, the school proposes the changes outlined in the document ‘Admissions Consultation - Changes for 2025-26’. 

Please note there have been NO changes to the Published Admission Number (PAN), the priority order of over-subscription criteria or the minimum entry requirements to the Sixth Form.

In accordance with the 2021 School Admissions Code guidance the school is consulting on the proposed changes. The consultation period will run from 30 October until the 11 December. 

During this time, parents and carers are invited to express their views and any concerns about the proposed changes. 

Please note that the consultation will only consider comments regarding the proposed changes summarised on the document Admissions Consultation - Changes for 2025-26.

Responses to the consultation can be submitted via the online consultation form or in writing and should be submitted/posted and received before 09:00 on the closing day of the consultation.
