Proposed Admissions Policy 2019-2020

We are consulting on the proposed admissions arrangements for entry to The Boswells School in our Admissions Determination from 2019/20. Please click here for a copy of the proposed admissions arrangements in full. The following amendments have been recommended by the Board Of Directors:

The Priority Admissions Area (click here)- the proposed change removes the part of our priority admissions area that covers the new development at Beaulieu. The 'original' housing development at Beaulieu is not affected and is still part of the proposed Priority Admissions Area. All other aspects of the Priority Admissions Area remain unchanged.

Additional Category:

5.  Where the child attends one of the following schools:

· Perryfields Junior School

· Tyrrells Primary School

· Springfield Primary School

· Trinity Road Primary School

· Barnes Farm Junior School 

Within this criterion, children will be ranked in distance order for admission by straight line distance. Those living nearer will have a higher priority, starting with the nearest first. All straight line distances are calculated electronically by the local authority using data provided jointly by the Post Office and Ordnance Survey. The data is used to plot the co-ordinates of each individual property and the school. Distances are reported in miles to three decimal places.

In the unlikely event of applicants with an identical distance competing for a single place at a school, the place will be offered to one applicant on the basis of lots drawn by a member of school staff not involved in admissions, with the exception of twins, triplets etc.

The consultation process will close at 3.30pm on 5th January 2018
