Admission Arrangements

Consultation on Admissions Arrangements 2020


Admission authorities are required to formally consult on any changes to their admission policy and/or every seven years. As The Rutland Learning Trust, we are the admission authority for the schools within our trust.


We are consulting on our admission arrangements for September 2020 and 'in-year' admissions for 2020/21.  Please find attached a summary letter of our proposed admission policy changes and how to obtain copies of the policy.


The consultation period runs from 14th December 2018 until the 31st January 2019.


Should you wish to make any comments about the proposed arrangements you can do so by email to dkkettle@rutlandlearningtrust or by following the information in the summary letter.
