School admission arrangements for 2018

Published: 10/03/2017

Councillors will be asked to approve school admissions arrangements for 2018 at a meeting of the Cabinet on Tuesday 14 March. The annual consultation exercise with school governors, diocesan authorities and neighbouring councils took place during January and February. It looked at the number of pupils which can be admitted to individual schools, based on nationally determined criteria and regulations. In Flintshire the vast majority (96%) of parental preferences continue to be met with a relatively low number of appeals. There are proposed changes to the admission numbers in several schools to reflect changes in accommodation. All changes have been approved by the relevant headteacher. The schools are: Ysgol Cae’r Nant, Ysgol Parc y Llan, Connah’s Quay High School, St David’s High School and St Richard Gwyn High School. Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Youth, Councillor Chris Bithell, said: “It is encouraging that most children in Flintshire are able to attend the school of their choice. I would like to thank all those who provided feedback during the recent consultation and I am confident that the vast majority of parental preferences will continue to be met.”
