Proposed admission arrangements for Hillingdon community schools for 2025/2026

Community Schools Admissions Arrangements  

As set out in the School Admissions Code, Admission authorities must set (‘determine’) admission arrangements annually. Where changes are proposed to admission arrangements, the admission authority must first publicly consult on those arrangements. Consultation must be for a minimum of 6 weeks and must take place between 1st October and 31st January of the school year before those arrangements are to apply.  


Hillingdon Council is the admissions authority for all Hillingdon Community schools and the Council will be consulting for 8 weeks from 23rd October 2023 until 18th December 2023 (Midday) for changes to the admission criteria to be implemented for admission from September 2025. 


You can access the proposed admission arrangements for Hillingdon community schools for 2025/2026 here (PDF attached below) 


Summary of proposed changes: 

Reduction of Published Admissions Numbers 

All community schools have a published admissions number in accordance with the School Admissions Code 2021. This is the number of school places that the admission authority must offer in each relevant age group of a school for which it is the admission authority.  

The Local Authority is consulting to reduce the Published Admission Number for: 

  • Whitehall Infant School from 120 to 90, reducing the distance priority radius from 1250m to 1000m. 
  • Whitehall Junior School from 120 to 90, reducing the distance priority radius from 1250m to 1000m.  

How to respond? 

The local authority welcomes your feedback.  You can access further information regarding the reasoning of proposed changes and make comments or suggestions in response, please visit the Council website via Community Schools consultation - Hillingdon Council


Alternatively, you can submit a written response to School Placement and Admissions Team, 3N/02, High Street, Uxbridge, UB8 1UW.
