Secondary Admission Policy 2018/2019 Consultation

The Governing Body wishes to make a change to its Admissions Policy that requires public consultation. The change would come into force in the Admissions Policy for the 2018/19 school year and would therefore affect applications for entry in September 2018 and subsequent years.

There is no change to our policy for the 2017 admissions round which is currently in progress.

Our consultation period is between 9th December 2016 – 31st January 2017. You are invited to provide your views and comments on any aspect of the proposed school admission arrangements.

Main Proposed Changes

  1. The School will in exceptional circumstances consider applications received for special consideration on medical and social grounds.
  1. A new Category F has been added to consider applications from employees of Cardinal Hume Catholic School at the time of admission.

All responses must be made in writing and a Consultation Response form is available below. Please return any comments for the attention of Mrs Grainger, School Admissions Officer.

The closing date for consultation is 31st January 2017.

Responses will be considered by the Governing Body and any changes they agree, if any, will be determined by no later than 28th February 2017. Once determined the final admission arrangements will be published on the school website and Gateshead Council website on 15th March 2017.
