Admissions Consultation for 2021-22

STATUTORY CONSULTATION ON PROPOSED CHANGES TO
THE ADMISSION ARRANGEMENTS FOR HAMILTON ACADEMY
TO TAKE EFFECT FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2021-22

 Each year the admission authority for all schools and academies are required to review their admission arrangements. The admission authority must consult on proposed changes to the admission arrangements.

The Hamilton Academy Governing Body are consulting on two changes with interested parties with a view to the changes taking effect from September 2021:

1) Change to catchment area

Hamilton Academy is consulting on a change to its catchment area as it has been brought to its attention by Buckinghamshire County Council that due to building work within Hamilton’s catchment area, there are now new homes that cross the border of the catchment areas of Hamilton and Hannah Ball School. These may be brand new buildings or building conversions, such as office blocks turned into flats.

In order to ensure there is no ambiguity regarding which catchment area a property resides in, Buckinghamshire County Council has drafted the attached map detailing the proposed change to Hamilton’s catchment area.  The map highlights Hamilton’s current catchment area, the proposed change to this catchment area and the development that has prompted the proposed change.  Copies are also available from the school office.

 2) Change to oversubscription criteria

Hamilton Academy is consulting on a change to its oversubscription criteria to give higher priority to those children who are enrolled at Hamilton’s Nursery. The proposal is that this oversubscription criteria becomes criterion 5, with 'all remaining children' becoming criterion 6.

 The full proposed admission arrangements are available to view via the link on this page of our website. 

The consultation will run from Friday 8 November 2019 to Friday 20 December 2019. 

The Governing Body invites comments on the proposed change. Please send your comments to Mr Paul Basham,  Chair of Governors, Hamilton Academy or email: hamilton1@bucksgfl.org.uk

Kind regards,

Yours faithfully

Paul Basham
Chair of Governors
