Admission authorities must set (‘determine’) admission arrangements annually. Where changes are proposed to admission arrangements, the admission authority must first publicly consult on those arrangements. If no changes are made to admission arrangements, they must be consulted on at least every seven years. Consultation must be for a minimum of eight weeks and must take place between 1 November and 1 March of the year before those arrangements are to apply. For example: for arrangements which are to apply to applications in 2014 (entry in September 2015), consultation must be completed by 1 March 2014. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about proposed admission arrangements.
The consultation is based on the Department for Education (DfE) School Admissions Code of Practice. Current admission arrangements for King's School are published here.
The admission arrangements within this consultation have been based on the School Admissions Code of Practice and the School Admission Appeals Code of Practice.

All other aspects of the arrangements will remain as previously published.
