Consultation regarding Admissions Arrangements for 2025-26

The Governing Body at Christ’s School would like to change the admissions criteria for entry into Years 7-11 from 2025/26 onwards. The changes proposed to the criteria are detailed below.

Years 7-11 Admissions Criteria

  1. The maximum number of places allocated for Christian Foundation applicants will be increased from 50 to 60. The minimum number of Open applicants will become 90 in order to maintain a Published Admission Number of 150. This decision has been taken by the Governing Body, following analysis of application data over the past three years, in order to ensure that Christ’s School continues to meet the preferences of as many Foundation student as possible 

  1. The definition of Exceptional Need has been expanded to provide more clarity and examples of where an application is unlikely to meet the threshold for Exceptional Need set by the Governing Body at Christ’s School

  1. The Christian Foundation Supplementary Information Form has been amended to make it clear that only those forms submitted with Ministerial Reference completed by the religious leader will be considered by the Governing Body to meet the attendance criteria specified within the oversubscription criteria.

A copy of the proposed Admissions Arrangement and supporting Christian Foundation Supplementary Information Form can be found below. If you would like a paper copy, please email to request.

The consultation period is six weeks. If you would like to make a comment in support or against this proposal, please write to me at the school address or email by 5pm on Wednesday 31 January 2024, which is the closing date for receipt of comments.

Following this date, the Governing Body will consider all comments and finalise the determined admissions arrangements for 2025/26.
