The council’s admission arrangements

The council’s school admissions arrangements are determined or agreed every year.  The arrangements for pupils starting school in September 2021 were agreed by the children, young people and skills committee on January 2020 following a period of public consultation. 

Details of the arrangements are available here 

Arrangements for church voluntary aided and academies

Academies, free schools and church voluntary aided schools set their own admission arrangements. Some academies like City Academy Whitehawk, Brighton Aldridge Community Academy and Portslade Aldridge Community Academy use the arrangements set by the council.
