School admissions arrangements

Consultation on Admissions Arrangements for 2019/20

Kingston Council is consulting on proposed admission arrangements for community schools, in-year admissions and the coordinated primary and secondary admissions schemes for 2019/20.

There are two proposed changes for 2019-2020:

  • to include priority for children of staff as an admissions criterion for 2019/2020
  • to remove the separate admissions criteria for entry into Reception and transfer into Year 3 for Alexandra School. These were in place during the transition period from infant to junior for Alexandra School (formerly an infant school) and St Paul’s CofE Primary School, Kingston Hill (formerly a junior school).

There are no other proposed changes to the admission arrangements for community schools and the only significant change to the coordinated primary and secondary schemes from 2018-19 is to the dates in the Pan London timetable.

If you would like a paper copy of the consultation and response form, please phone: 020 8547 4610.

Please note the deadline for response to the consultation is midday Friday 15 December 2017.

To let us know your views, please use the consultation response form and submit your response form either by email or by post.
