Admissions Criteria Amendments Consultation for 2020/21

Admissions Criteria Amendments Consultation for 2020/21

The Governing Board wishes to make a change to its Admissions Policy that requires public consultation. The change would come into force in the Admissions Policy for the 2020/21 school year and would therefore affect applications for entry in September 2019 and subsequent years.

There is no change to our policy for the 2019/20 admissions round which is currently in progress.

Our consultation period is between 20th December 2018 and 31st January 2019. You are invited to provide your views and comments on any aspect of the proposed school admission arrangements.

We are proposing the following amendments to our Pupil Admission Number for Year 12:

Under criterion 3.1 we are reducing our Year 12 PAN to 10.  This is because Year 11 students who attend Ron Dearing UTC are guaranteed a place in Year 12 providing they meet the entry criteria for courses.  Ron Dearing UTC cannot accommodate more than 150 students in Year 12.  There are 140 Year 11 students eligible for Year 12 places.  There are, therefore, only 10 places available to external candidates.

A copy of the proposed Admissions Policy is available below, with the amendments highlighted for your consideration during the consultation period.

All responses must be made in writing and a Consultation Response form is attached. Please return any comments by email to

The closing date for the consultation is 31st January 2019.

Responses will be considered by the Governing Board and any changes they agree, if any, will be determined by no later than 7th February 2019. Once determined the final admission arrangements will be published on the school website and the Hull City Council website.


Yours faithfully,


Sarah Pashley
