Booklets for September 2022 entry

Our primary and secondary school admissions booklets cover general information about the application process for all school stages. In addition, they include:

  • school contact details
  • maps showing schools within localities
  • previous year's preference and allocation data (this shows how many people applied and how many places the school had available)
  • school admission policies (oversubscription criteria) 

The booklets contain information as at publication date. Some schools may apply to become academies during the year. You can find up to date information on any change in status, on the Department for Education, Open Academies and academy projects in development website.

For full up-to-date admission arrangements for academies, foundation and voluntary aided schools see the school website.
