Admissions Policy 2019-20

Voluntary aided schools, academies and free schools

These schools are their own admission authorities and set their own admission policies.  Individual admission arrangements are published on the school or academy's website.

Co-ordinated admission scheme 

Blackpool has a co-ordinated admissions scheme which applies to families seeking school places for September 2019.

The scheme makes applying for a school place more transparent for all parties involved in the admission process. As co-ordination is a legal requirement, all Blackpool schools are included within the arrangements.

The aim of the co-ordinated scheme is to provide all parents with an offer of a single school place on the same day.
