Statutory Consultation on School Admission Arrangements for 2017 / 2018

In accordance with the requirements of the School Admissions Regulations, Parkfield School has followed the consultation process on admission arrangements for the academic year of 2017/18.

The statutory consultation period for the change to Parkfield School's admissions policy has now closed.

The consultation documents included our admissions policy and over-subscription criteria for admission to Parkfield School, and reflected the changes to our arrangements that determine how places are allocated if there are more applications than places available.

No changes are proposed to the admission arrangements for in-year admissions.
