Hi All,

How will they allocate places if this is not part of determined admissions arrangement?
Can they increase places for local catchment only without consultation?

I think they can do this without consultation as the situation demands it otherwise some local children will be left without a secondary school place. I suspect the local catchment allocation will go up by 30 places with those being offered places ranked for this year only and normal rules apply for 2021.

Increase in places for category paying Council Tax to Sutton Borough?

I think that unless the school applies for a variation to their admission policy, they would have to stick to what the published criteria are for this year. So if the categories (completely made up off the top of my head) were
- LAC / PLAC
- up to 150 girls living within 5 miles of the school, score order
- up to PAN, living anywhere, score order
then the 151st and downwards 'within 5 miles' girls would stand a better chance than if it said
- LAC/ PLAC
- up to 150 girls, living within 5 miles, score order
- remaining places, girls living further than 5 miles, score order, remaining '<5miles' places also to go to '>5 miles' residents.

The second example is what happened at DS2's school in his year (boys, not girls :)), when there was a post-allocation day decision to offer 30 extra places, even though the school's overall aim was to increase the number of local places available. For subsequent years, the wording was amended to refer to percentages, not absolute numbers, so that the effect was to have a maximum of 150 places available IC (up from 125 in the year above DS2), minimum 30 available OOC (up from 25), rather than the situation in DS2's year, where all the extra places had to go to OOC applicants.

The way oversubscription criteria are numbered and note 5.2.6, any increase in places should go to highest ranking category 5.2.2 if school does not consult and apply for variation to OSA.

Has any concerned parent asked Nonsuch to clarify about the allocation of the extra places?

I spoke to admissions today and they have confirmed there will be 30 extra places for residents with postcodes in the London Borough of Sutton ie the 15 ring fenced places are increasing to 45 for September this year. Hope this helps some of you!

If this is legal and not breaking Greenwich ruling, then every school can have in-borough catchment.

Is there any update if 2021 year 7 intake will have an increased number of students as well? 30 places in total can push the cutoff significantly.
