Consultation on Admissions for 2018 Entry

The Interim Academy Board of Rydens Enterprise School and Sixth Form College as part of The Howard Partnership Trust (THPT) will be consulting on proposed changes to the admissions criteria for September 2018. This consultation is open to all interested parties and the Interim Academy Board is distributing this communication to all parents/carers, local schools, local stakeholder groups and other admissions authorities.

The changes to the admissions criteria have been highlighted in bold/italic, the main changes being an increase in PAN to 300 and the inclusion of Burhill Primary School and Grovelands Primary School as named feeder schools as the academic year 2017/18 is the first year that these two primary schools will have a Year 6. The increase in our PAN is at the request of the local authority. We expect to move into our new school building (please see the update attached) in December 2017 and by September 2018 we will be able to accommodate 10 forms of entry. We would ask that you please, as appropriate, make parents and community/resident groups aware of this consultation process, either through your website, in your newsletter or on school notice boards.

Rydens Enterprise School and Sixth Form College joined The Howard Partnership Trust (THPT) on 1 September 2016. As a result, THPT has become the Admissions Authority and we are required by law to consult for a minimum period of six weeks on changes to the admissions arrangements. The consultation period beings on 28th November 2016 and will end on 23rd January 2017. If you have any comments on the proposed changes to our admission arrangements please email:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
