Admission Policy

(For entry in September 2018)

King Henry School has a published admission intake number of 360 pupils.

Responsibility for Admissions

The ‘Admissions Authority’ is the Governing Body of King Henry School. The admission number is 360.  The parents of all applicants must complete an application form obtained from their home Local Authority. King Henry School will admit pupils representing all levels of ability from admission applicants.

Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the published admissions number, children will be admitted from each band on the basis of the oversubscription criteria set out below.

Note: Where a pupil has a Statement of Special Educational Needs that names King Henry School as the educational provision suitable to meet the pupil’s SEN that pupil has to be admitted to King Henry School.

Therefore for the purposes of allocating places such pupils will be treated as having the first priority for admission to the King Henry School, and will be automatically allocated a place.
