Admissions

All schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school. Click the green link below to download our current Admissions Policy.

2018 -19 Admissions Policy
 
Where changes are proposed to the admissions arrangements (including any supplementary information form) that will apply for admissions applications the following academic year, the admission authority must first publicly consult on those arrangements. 
 
The Trust Board of Salisbury Plain Academies is the admission authority and responsible for the admission arrangements of the School. 

We are consulting with parents and the local community to make sure our admission arrangements meet future needs.
