It's definitely 15th March for primary schools. I actually thought that it was earlier for secondary schools, too, though.

Eta, I was wrong. From the Admissions Code:
,
Example timetable
Determination Year (2015/16)

(The school year in which admission authorities determine their admission arrangements)
1 October 2015 Earliest date to start consultation on proposed
arrangements. Consultation must last a minimum of 6
weeks.
1 January 2016 Deadline for the local authority to formulate a
co-ordinated scheme for state funded schools in their
area, including any new school or Academy which is
expected to open.
31 January 2016
Deadline for the completion of the consultation on
proposed admission arrangements.
28 February 2016
Deadline for admission arrangements to be determined
even if they have not changed from the previous year and a consultation has not been required.
After which the Secretary of State may impose a co-
ordinated scheme if local agreement has not beensecured by this date.

15 March 2016
Deadline for admission authorities to send a copy of their full determined admission arrangements to their local authority.
15 March 2016
Deadline for local authorities to publish on their website
the proposed admission arrangements for any new
school or Academy which is intended to open within the
determination year, details of where the determined
arrangements for all schools, including Academies, can
be viewed, and information on how to refer objections to the Schools Adjudicator.
15 May 2016
Deadline for objections to the Schools Adjudicator.
30 June 2016
Deadline for local authorities to report to the Schools
Adjudicator on admission arrangements in their area.
8 August 2016
Deadline for governing bodies to provide admission
arrangements information to the local authority to allow
them to compile composite prospectus.

Perhaps I mixed up the dates. It seems 28 Feb is correct.

28th is the deadline for determination - but it seems that 15th March is the deadline for sending to LA.
Presumably they would have to provide a copy on request after the 28th, but publishing before 15th March seems to meet the SAC requirements.....

Interesting they have posted another English sample paper with a format that is closer to Highgate English papers than the previous paper?

Does this mean that they are going to hike the English paper this year which last year students found very easy compared to DAO and HBS? DG
