Consultation For Proposed Admission Arrangements 2018/2019

Dear Parents/Carers,

The Creative Education Trust (CET) is the Admission Authority for Thistley Hough Academy. As such, Thistley Hough Academy are proposing to make changes to its admission arrangements for the academic year 2018/2019 in order to comply with CET’s policy. As such, The Admissions Code of Practice requires an Admission Authority consult with stakeholders including parents of children aged between 2 and 18 years.

The changes include further clarity on:

  1. Tie breaker process
  2. Process for admitting twins and children from multiple births
  3. Process for admitting children of UK Service Personnel
  4. Waiting list process
  5. Appeals process

Thistley Hough Academy’s proposed Admission Policy for 2018/2019 is available via the following links:

Thistley Hough Academy Consultation for Proposed Admission Arrangements 2018-19

The consultation will take place for a minimum of 6 term time weeks from Monday 14th November 2016 to Friday 20th January 2017.

Your views on any aspect of the admission arrangement will be sent to our Local Governing Body and the Board of Directors for Consultation. All responses received by the end of the consultation will be carefully considered and will decide the admission arrangements for the school year 2018/2019. Once the arrangements have been determined, they will be publicised by 7th April 2017.

We therefore invite you to take part in this consultation on the amendment to our admission policy. Comments may be made in the following ways:
