FOI request details


Request 18840

18 March 2016

Applicant type: Company

1) A list of all secondary schools in your Local Authority that were oversubscribed on national offer day in 2016 (1st March).


a) Please include all schools offering secondary education. For example, please include upper and middle schools if these are present in your local authority.

b) We define a school to be oversubscribed if and only if at least one on-time applicant was refused a place, and the applicant did not receive an offer from any higher preference school. If there were no refusals, then we do not consider the school to be oversubscribed even if it admitted up to its admission number. If you use a different definition of oversubscription, then please could you make this clear in the response.

c) If you are not able to provide this information for all schools, then please state which schools you do not know the oversubscription status for.

d) Please include either URN, DFE code, or address/postcode to allow us to identify the relevant school without ambiguity.

2) For each of the oversubscribed schools identified under (1) above:

a) The admission criterion that the last successful pupil was admitted under.

b) The home-to-school distance and unit of measurement of this last successful applicant (i.e. the cut-off distance), where distance was used to prioritise this last place.

c) For grammar schools only - the minimum qualifying score in the entrance tests.


Refused - 22 March 2016

Please note that our responses were accurate to the best of our knowledge at the time of release, and have not subsequently been updated. This information should be considered an historical record only.
