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 admissions policy and criteria defined by ourselves. However, voluntary aided, foundation and academy schools can have their own admission policies.

Coordinated admission 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).
As well as being responsible for coordinated admissions, We are the admissions authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools within the county. Admission authorities must set and determine their admission arrangements annually. If there is no change from the previous year, there is no need for further consultation.
