The local authority, the LA, is the admitting authority for all community schools in the area. The school has no part to play in deciding which pupils are admitted.
Each child about to transfer from primary to secondary education will be invited to apply for a place at a school maintained by the LA. Parents/carers can apply online for a place at the catchment school or express a preference for a placement at an alternative school. Those parents who apply on time for a place at any school will be given priority over those who have not.
