The Latimer Arts College: admissions information

​Oversubscription criteria: September 2018 entry

Following the allocation of places to students who have a statement of special educational needs/EHC Plan which names the school as appropriate provision, when there are more applications for places than there are places available, priority will be given in the following order:

  1.  Children in public care (Looked After Children) or previously Looked After Children.
  2. Students who will have an older brother or sister continuing at the Latimer Arts College at the time of admission of the younger child.
  3. 10% of students (approximately 20 students) will be selected for their aptitude in art, dance, drama or music. To be selected through workshops.*
  4.  Those students who live with their parents or carers at an address in Barton Seagrave, or the linked town/villages of Burton Latimer, Cranford and Isham (using wards as according to Kettering Borough Council).**
  5. Other students.

Distance tiebreaker

If there is oversubscription in any of the categories (apart from 3), preference will be given to those who live closest to the college, measured on a straight line basis from home address to the address point of the college using NCC GIS.

*Operation of the Arts places criteria
Parents and carers complete both the local authority application form and the Arts College application form if applying for an ‘Arts College' place (20 places). Completed Arts College application forms should be returned to the College by Monday 9 October 2017 at 9:00am.

**Proof of residence
Documentary evidence of ownership or rental agreement may be required together with proof of actual permanent residence at the property concerned. Places cannot be allocated on the basis of intended future changes of address unless house moves have been confirmed through the exchange of contracts or the signing of a formal lease agreement. The College reserves the right to seek further documentary evidence to support your claim to residence. The College will withdraw any place allocated if the address is found to be false.

  • A half-brother or half-sister, where two children share one common parent.
  • A step-brother or step-sister, where two children are related by a parent’s marriage or partnership. The partners must have co-habited in a permanent exclusive relationship (as if they were husband and wife or civil partners) for a minimum of 2 years.
  • Adopted children.
  • A brother or sister must be living at the same address when the application is made.

Checks may be made with the College to see if there is a realistic possibility of a sibling in Year 11 continuing in the Sixth Form.
