in-year admissions

In-year applications are all those made outside the normal round of admissions for children of compulsory school age i.e. those applications made during the academic year for a school place in Year 7 through to Year 11. In-year applications are dealt with by John Ferneley College directly.  To apply for a place here, parents/guardians should contact the school.

Objections to and referrals about determined school admission arrangements

You can make an objection to the Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA) if you think that the Primary School admissions arrangements of Mowbray Education Trust do not comply with the ‘School Admissions Code’ or other legislation relating to school admissions. Certain exceptions apply as set out in paragraph 3.3 of the Code.

Deadline for objections

All admissions authorities must determine their admission arrangements by 28 February every year, even if they have not changed from previous years and a consultation has not been required. You have until 15 May to contact the adjudicator if you have an objection.

If you wish to make an objection complete the ‘school admission arrangements objection form’.

Admission arrangements can also be referred to the adjudicator who may decide to consider whether or not they comply with admissions law and the Code and make a determination.
