Admission numbers

  • The Local Authority is only required to consult on changes to Admission Numbers where a reduction is proposed. A reduction was approved for 2020 in respect of Scott Primary School, which will reduce its admission number to 60.
  • Please follow the link to view the admission numbers for all community and voluntary controlled schools (Excel, 2.3MB). 
  • The governing bodies of voluntary aided, foundation schools and academies are their own admission authorities. Due to this, they are responsible for the determination of their admission arrangements, which must include details of their admission number and must be published on their website.
