Reaching high for the best for your child

Admission Arrangements


Determined Admission Arrangements

All schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school.

Admission arrangements are determined by admitting authorities. Fairlands is an academy within The Claxton Trust, and the trust has delegated responsibilities for admissions to local govening body level, so the school is its own admitting authority. 

Admission arrangements are described as 'determined' when they are agreed and published by the admitting authority i.e. the governing body at Fairlands. 

Our determined admission arrangements are published below:
