Community schools

These admission arrangements apply to entry from September 2017 for the following secondary schools:

  • Buile Hill Visual Arts College
  • Ellesmere Park High School
  • Harrop Fold High School
  • Irlam and Cadishead College
  • Moorside High School
  • Walkden High School

Each school has a determined number for admissions which is based on the size of the school. For more information, please see the admission numbers document below. If the number of pupils requiring places at that school exceeds the determined number then not everybody will be successful in obtaining a place there. This is what is meant when a school is said to be 'oversubscribed'.

Where a school receives more applications than places available, the oversubscription criteria will be applied once places have first been allocated to children who have a statement of special education needs or an education, health and care plan which names the school. These oversubscription criteria are available below.
