Warwickshire 2023 entry School Admission Arrangements

Closes 14 Jan 2022

Opened 22 Nov 2021

Overview

Warwickshire County Council is required to operate a coordinated admissions scheme. This allows Warwickshire residents to make a single application for places at their preferred school(s) and receive a single offer of a school place, whether or not this is one of their preference schools.

Warwickshire County Council is undertaking a consultation relating to our admission arrangements for the 2023/24 academic year. As required by the School Admissions Code (2021), admission authorities must consult on their proposed admissions arrangements for 2023 entry between 01 October 2021 and 31 January 2022. Consultation for 2023 entry must last for a minimum of six weeks. The consultation period for Warwickshire County Council’s proposed admission arrangements for 2023 entry, and in-year admissions for the 2023/24 academic year, will therefore operate between: 9am on Monday 22 November 2021 and 5pm on Friday 14 January 2022.

Please see the consultation information document and other supporting information below for further details.

What happens following the consultation period?

Following the consultation period, the arrangements will then be considered by Cabinet, before being determined by the deadline of 28 February 2022 (as required by the School Admissions Code). Once the arrangements have been determined, Warwickshire County Council will publish the final version of its 2023 entry coordinated scheme, the relevant oversubscription criteria for this entry year, and the 2023/24 in-year arrangements, as well as the admission arrangements for schools who are their own admission authority, on the WCC website, by the deadline of 15 March 2022.
