Admissions

We have a statutory duty to, where possible, educate children at the school preferred by their parents or carers.

In the vast majority of cases, parents are happy to choose their catchment school but it is legally necessary for that school to be selected and named on the ‘Admission to School’ form and returned by the deadline. A place will not automatically be available at a particular school, even if you live in the catchment area.

Bridgend County Borough Council is the admissions authority for community schools. For voluntary aided schools, the admissions authority is the governing body for the school.
