Community Schools Admissions Arrangements
As set out in the School Admissions Code, Admission authorities must set (‘determine’) admission arrangements annually. Where changes are proposed to admission arrangements, the admission authority must first publicly consult on those arrangements. Consultation must be for a minimum of 6 weeks and must take place between 1st October and 31st January of the school year before those arrangements are to apply.
Hillingdon Council is the admissions authority for all Hillingdon Community schools and the Council will be consulting for 8 weeks from Monday 24 October 2022 until 19 December 2022 (12pm finish) for changes to the admission criteria to be implemented for admission from September 2024.
You can access the proposed admission arrangements for Hillingdon community schools for 2024 / 2025 below.
Summary of proposed changes:
Reduction of Published Admissions Numbers
All community schools have a published admissions number in accordance with the School Admissions Code 2021. This is the number of school places that the admission authority must offer in each relevant age group of a school for which it is the admission authority.

Coteford Infants School from 81 to 60, reducing the distance priority radius from 1000m to 750m.
