Every school and academy will have admission arrangements in place which sets out how applicants are considered for a place. If there are more applications than places available at a school or academy, the admission criteria they use will decide the order of priority.
If a school or academy decide they want to change how they offer their places, the law requires that they carry out a consultation a year before they are due to change.
Consultations for schools and academies that will be shown on this page and will apply to children that will be due to start either reception or Year 7 or secondary school from September 2024. The period of consultation must take place for 6 weeks or more and end by 31 January 2023.
A consultation process allows any concerns about the changes to be raised. The law expects schools or academies to bring their consultation to the attention of:
- parents of children between the ages of two and eighteen
- other persons in the area who have an interest in the proposed arrangements
- all other school and academies within the local area
- the local authority
- any neighbouring local authorities
- any relevant faith bodies, for example the local diocese
Westminster Council community primary schools
Westminster Council is the admission authority for seven community primary schools.
- Barrow Hill

There are no key changes proposed for 2024/25, apart from clarity in some areas outlined in the document below. There is also a proposal to reduce the Published Admissions Number (PAN) for Hallfield and Essendine Primary School.
Any comments should be sent to [email protected] by Friday 23 December 2022.
