Proposed changes to school admission arrangements for 2019
The School Admissions Code requires that all admission authorities should consult on their admission arrangements at least once every seven years, even if there have been no changes during that period. The consultation period for changes for 2019 intakes will run from Monday 13 November to Friday 12 January 2018.
Details of schools’ proposed changes for 2019 intakes are listed below.
