Daventry UTC: admissions information

​Daventry UTC, Ashby Road, Daventry, Northants NN11 0QE

Oversubscription criteria

Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the published pupil admissions number, applications will be considered against the criteria set out below. After the admission of students with statements of Special Educational Needs (SEN) where the Daventry UTC is named on the statement as appropriate provision, the criteria will be applied in the order in which they are set out below:   


  1. Children in Public Care (looked after children) and those previously looked after.
  2. Students who will have an older sibling who previously attended or is continuing at Daventry UTC at the time of admission
  3. Children residing in the priority zones 1 of the catchment area in the numbers set out below:
    • Zone A – 50% of the places (60) by random allocation
    • Zone B – 50% of the places (60) by random allocation
  4. other children

* as shown on the following map.

Distance tiebreaker

If the admission number is exceeded within criterion c; the tiebreaker will be random allocation. If places are allocated in criterion d and the admission number is exceeded, then the tiebreaker will be distance (measured in a straight line) from the child’s permanent home address to the main entrance of the UTC; those children living nearest will be given preference.

Sub-regional catchment area map

regional catchment area map 

The Daventry UTC Trust will recruit from a sub-regional catchment area. Year 10 target student recruitment will be drawn from applicants living in the defined catchment area which is designated by post codes:

  • Zone A – NN11 post codes
  • Zone B – NN1, NN2, NN3, NN4, NN5, NN6, NN7, NN12, NN13, CV23, CV21, CV22, CV47, OX17, OX16 post codes


  1. If there are the same number or fewer applicants from any zone than places available, then all applicants will be offered a place. Any unfilled zone places will be distributed to those applicants who live in the other priority zone using random allocation.
  2. Random allocation will be used as a tie-breaker to determine who is offered a place if a zone is oversubscribed. Criterion (5) above will not come into operation until all applicants who live in the priority zones have been offered places.
  3. If there are more applicants from a zone than places available, the remaining places will be allocated through random allocation of those places in accordance with the over subscription criteria.
  4. Applications from sets of twins or other children from multiple births will be treated as individual applicants, this may result in one child being allocated a place under random allocation and another not.
  5. If we are unable to distinguish between applicants on the basis of distance under criterion (5) (because they are children who are as a result of multiple birth or live in the same block of flats) then the child or children who will be offered the available place(s) will be randomly selected.

Unsuccessful applicants will have a right of appeal to an independent admission appeals panel.
