Admission policies

This page tells you about how school places are decided for reception classes at primary schools and Year 7 places at secondary schools, and sixth form places at schools with a sixth form.

Each school has a set number of places at the beginning of the school year. If too many people apply for a place, the policies below set out how schools decide who will get a place.

These rules apply to community, voluntary controlled, voluntary aided schools and foundation schools and academies.
