Admissions Policy 2020/2021

We are consulting on our admission policy for 2020/2021. 

Please contact the school office on 01865 872702 or email the school office on office.3161@horspath.oxon.sch.uk  if you have any comments.

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

Plans for 2021-22

The school governors have approved in principle a plan to change the oversubscription criteria to give priority to pupils who qualify for Pupil Premium funding. This would apply first within criteria 3 (in catchment), and then within criteria 5 (out of catchment).

This change is in line with recommendations in the Sutton Trust’s Parent Power 2018 report “in order to create a more socially balanced intake and better reflect their local communities.”

There has been insufficient time to explore the practicalities of this in time for 2020-21 admissions, but the governors would welcome feedback on this proposal prior to the formal consultation for 2021-22 admissions.
