Community and Voluntary Controlled schools

Sometimes schools don't have enough places for everyone that applies. Where this is the case, all applications are assessed and ranked according to certain criteria. Places are then offered in ranking order.

Different types of school will have different criteria. Community schools, voluntary controlled and controlled schools use the community/voluntary controlled schools admissions policies. However, voluntary aided, foundation and academy schools can have their own admission policies.

Coordinated admissions schemes

All local authorities must have in place a scheme for coordinating admission arrangements for schools in their area. Coordinated schemes allow parents to make a single application for a school place and to receive a single offer (in accordance with the Education Act 2002).
