Secondry School Admissions Consultation

The Council is considering a change to the admission arrangements and oversubscription criteria for community secondary schools to ensure that those living in a school catchment area will be a high priority for admission to a school in the event of oversubscription. The proposed change will prioritise those living in a school's catchment area and remove the feeder primary school as an oversubscription criterion. This will give priority to pupils living in an area to gain a place in their local school.
