Consultation – Admissions Policy 2025-2026

Admissions Consultation: Avanti House Secondary School

The Avanti Schools Trust would like to give notice of changes to the school’s Admission Policy for the 2025-2026 academic year. The consultation will run from Monday 6th November 2023 to Monday 18th December 2023.

The proposed changes are as follows:

• Oversubscription Criteria 6: Up to 15 Hindu children with a practising Hindu parent who do not meet the requirements in criteria 5. To be included in this category, a completed SIF certified by a representative of the parent’s temple must be submitted to the School by the closing date for applications (with the exception for in year applications for which there is no closing date), in addition to the CAF submitted to the Local Authority. Children for whom a SIF is not received by the closing date for applications, and children falling into this category who do not achieve a place, will be included in the category below.

• For clarity – there is no closing date for in-year admissions applications.

• Waiting lists are held for the duration of the school year after which time parents and carers will need to reapply for their child.

The draft policy for consultation can be viewed below or a copy is available, on request, from the school.

The admissions authority invites comments on the proposed clarification for in-year admissions, the amendment to oversubscription criteria 6 and the clarification on the process for waiting lists for Avanti House Secondary School.

Comments may be sent via this or via email to [email protected]
