Bedford Borough Council admission arrangements 2022

Bedford Borough Council has determined its admission arrangements for September 2022.

The determined admission arrangements are set out in the documents linked to this webpage but are summarised below.

Admissions criteria

Admission numbers

  • The Local Authority is only required to consult on changes to Admission Numbers where a reduction is proposed. No reductions were proposed for 2022.
  • Please follow the link to view the admission numbers for all community and voluntary controlled schools (PDF)
  • The governing bodies of voluntary aided, foundation schools and academies are their own admission authorities and, therefore, responsible for the determination of their admission arrangements which must include details of their admission number and must be published on their website. Please follow the link to this list of schools/academies.
