Determined arrangements 

Each year we must decide admission arrangements for community and voluntary schools, of which we are the admission authority. For academies, foundation, free and voluntary aided schools, the governors are the admission authority for the school.

Current admission arrangements are listed below. Governed schools arrangements will be added as and when they are made available to us and any comments are to be addressed to the school themselves.

Anyone may object about the final version of a policy determined by us or governors of an academy, foundation, free or voluntary aided school. Objections need to be sent to the Schools Adjudicator by 30 June in each year.
