Under section 90 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, relevant parents and other bodies have the right to object to the Schools Adjudicator about admission arrangements after the arrangements have been determined. Admission authorities must determine their arrangements by 28 February in the year preceding the admission year, i.e. before they take effect. 

For information about determined admission arrangements, please see below.

Please note: The admission policies for Academies, Aided, Foundation and Free Schools can be viewed on the individual school's websites.
