Warwickshire 2020 entry School Admission Arrangements

Closed 11 Jan 2019

Opened 29 Nov 2018


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 about to commence a consultation period relating to our admission arrangements for the 2020/21 academic year. As required by the School Admissions Code (2014), admission authorities must consult on their proposed admissions arrangements for 2020 entry between 01 October 2018 and 31 January 2019. Consultation for 2020 entry must last for a minimum of six weeks. The consultation period for Warwickshire County Council’s proposed admission arrangements for 2020 entry, and in-year admissions for the 2020/21 academic year, will therefore operate between: 9am on Friday 23 November 2018 and 9am on Friday 11 January 2019

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 2019 (as required by the School Admissions Code). Once the arrangements have been determined, Warwickshire County Council will publish the final version of its 2020 entry coordinated scheme, the relevant oversubscription criteria for this entry year, and the 2020/21 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 2019.
