Admission arrangements

School admission arrangements set out how schools will admit pupils.

The arrangements include the published admission number (the maximum number of pupils intended to be admitted to the relevant year group), the oversubscription criteria and information on the waiting list for the school.

Admission arrangements have to be determined 18 months before the September of the academic year for which they’re relevant.

For the academic year 2016-2017 our admission arrangements were determined by 15 April 2016.

Determined admission arrangements for Barnsley schools

Barnsley Council is the admission authority for all community and voluntary controlled schools in the borough.  This means that we set the over-subscription criteria and make decisions about which pupils are admitted to these schools.

For foundation, voluntary aided schools and academies, the admission authority is the school’s governing body or the academy trust.
