Proposed admission arrangements for the 2022/23 school year

As the local authority is proposing no changes to the 2022/23 admission arrangements for community schools in Nottingham city from those approved for the 2021/22 school year we will not be consulting publicly on those arrangements. This is in accordance with paragraph 1.42 of the 2014 School Admissions Code. The admission arrangements will be considered at a meeting of the City Council’s Executive Board on 16 February 2021. A copy of the determined arrangements will be displayed on this website in April 2021.


Community schools in Nottingham are the ones run by Nottingham City Council. This means that the Council is responsible for offering or refusing places at these schools.

Consultation on proposed admission arrangements for the 2022/23 school year – academies

There are other schools in Nottingham responsible for making their own admission arrangements. For these schools/academies the governing body is the admissions authority and it must consult on its admission arrangements unless it is exempt from consulting in accordance with paragraph 1.42 of the School Admissions Code which states that where the admission arrangements have not changed from the previous year there is no requirement to consult, subject to the requirement that admission authorities must consult on their admission arrangements at least once every 7 years, even if there have been no changes during that period.
