Inspire. Persevere. Achieve.

Our Values

  • Honesty
  • Courage
  • Appreciation
  • Kindness
  • Cooperation
  • Responsibility


  • The governing body in primary and secondary schools is the admission authority and has the right to determine an individual admission policy for the school and apply the criteria for entry. In special schools the LA remains the admission authority
  • Foundation schools should be involved with the coordinated scheme which is administered on their behalf by the LA
  • Foundation schools have the right to be members of LA forums including the schools’ forum and the admission forum which plays an important part in producing a coordinated scheme and brokering agreement between schools
  • Foundation schools can be influential in the outcome of coordinated schemes because all admission authorities within an LA have to agree the scheme
  • Foundation schools should expect an additional delegated amount in their budgets to help offset the admissions responsibilities
