Bedford Borough Council proposed admission arrangements 2021

Bedford Borough Council is publishing its proposed admission arrangements for September 2021. The Council is not required to consult on its admission arrangements for community and voluntary controlled schools, nor its co-ordinated schemes for admission for the next seven years, unless any changes are proposed to those arrangements.

As there are no changes proposed that require consultation this is not a formal consultation. The proposed admission arrangements are set in the documents linked to this webpage.
