School Admissions - Voluntary Aided Schools

The governing Body of a Voluntary Aided school is directly responsible for controlling the school’s admission process. 

All Voluntary Aided Schools have to admit up to their admission number. Should the number of applications for admission exceed the number of places available, allocation will be made according to the over subscription criteria agreed by the governing body of each school. 

Preference is normally afforded on such grounds as religious denomination, residency, siblings, etc. 

Details of the names and addresses of individual VA schools, their admission policies and details of the Authority's Transport policy relating to VA schools can be found in the Parents / Carers Information Booklet.

Parents/carers should be aware that the closing date for applications to all primary voluntary aided schools is 13th January 2020 and for St Albans RC secondary school it will be Monday 11th November 2019.

Finally all admissions into any school are dealt with in accordance with the admissions policy of either the LA or a schools admissions policy and at no stage are pupils 'selected' or are interviews held to determine admission.
