Admissions Consultation

For the attention of all schools within the Bristol local authority area, including:

  • Nurseries
  • Children’s centres
  • Early years providers
  • Primary, Secondary and Special schools (maintained, academies and those with any religious affiliations)

In addition, this may be of interest to South Gloucestershire authority given the proximity of two of schools to that authority.

Dear Colleagues

Trust in Learning (Academies) are consulting on the proposed Admissions Arrangements 2022/23.  As part of our annual review of admission arrangements within the multi academy trust for 2022, we have carried out a major overhaul in order to tighten up wording and criteria in order to remove any ambiguity to parents/carers.

This covers admission arrangements for:

Bridge Learning Campus

Filton Avenue Primary School

Orchard School Bristol

Parson Street Primary School

Whilst we have not made any changes to our current oversubscription criteria and tie breaker (including related criteria such as how distance is measured) we have made changes to how the admission arrangements are laid out, with each of our schools having their own distinct arrangements in order to make them much clearer and to ensure that they are fully compliant with the school admission Code 2014.

We would be grateful if you could make this available to your school community and would welcome any comments.

The consultation process will run from Friday 18th December 2020 until 31st January 2021.  If you would like to comment or offer feedback on the proposed admission arrangements please complete the form here
