Our Services


‘Admissions’ cover the policies and processes by which children are allocated places at our schools. In compliance with the School Admissions Code 2021, each school has its own admissions policy which must be updated annually.

In developing our admissions policies and processes we collaborate with our School Leadership Teams, Local Governing Boards, Executive Leaders, Trustees and local authorities; managing public consultation on proposed policy changes where necessary. The final policies for the next calendar year of admission are then approved and determined by the Trust Board by 28 February each year, for publication on school websites by 15 March.

Our Trust school admissions policies drive the process and criteria for handling school applications fairly and consistently. We work closely with our local authorities, who have a legal duty to co-ordinate the process of allocating school places to all children within the communities we serve. If families do not receive an offer for their preferred setting, we are on hand to help our schools in presenting their case for any independent admission appeal hearings.
