Key stage 4 schools

Key Stage 4 schools are secondary schools that take children from Year 9 to Year 12.
 

The main changes to the existing arrangements are as follows:

  • An extension of the oversubscription criteria for children with exceptional medical and social grounds to include a provision for children who were in state care outside of England and who ceased to be in state care as a result of being adopted. This inclusion is in response to guidance and a request from the Department for Education. Other criteria remain the same as in the previous academic year (2019/20).
  • For Year 12 admissions, after looked after children, places will be allocated to eligible students according to postcode.
