When changes are proposed to admission arrangements, all admission authorities must consult on their admission arrangements that will apply for admission applications for the following school year at the normal point of entry. Where the admission arrangements have not changed from the previous year there is no requirement to consult subject to the requirement that admission authorities must consult on their admission arrangements at least once every 7 years, even if there have been no changes during that period.
Determined Admission Arrangements
The School Admission Regulations require admission authorities to set (‘determine’) admission arrangements annually. For entry in 2024 all admission authorities must have determined their admission arrangements by 28 February each year. Hurworth School determined their arrangements on the 11th February 2024.
Once arrangements have been determined, any objections to them should be referred in writing to the Schools Adjudicator. For entry in 2024 objections must be referred by 15 May in the year of entry. The Schools Adjudicator can be contacted at The Office of the Schools Adjudicator, Bishopsgate House, Feethams, Darlington, DL1 5QE. You can also contact them on 01325 340525 or by emailing the team at email@example.com .
Once admission arrangements have been determined for a particular school year, they cannot be revised by the admission authority unless such revision is necessary to give effect to a mandatory requirement of the Code, admission law, a determination of the Adjudicator or any misprint in the admission arrangements.
