Proposed Admission Arrangements for September 2025/2026

Closed 8 Jan 2024

Opened 17 Nov 2023


Birmingham City Council is the admission authority for community and voluntary controlled schools and is responsible for consulting on the proposed admissions arrangements and proposed admissions numbers for the 2025/2026 academic year.

Birmingham City Council also facilitates the consultation process on behalf of own admission authority schools in Birmingham that have instructed the Council to carry out the consultation on their proposed admissions arrangements for the 2025/2026 academic year.

Why your views matter

When admission authorities propose changes to their current admission arrangements, they must consult on those changes for a minimum of six weeks. This consultation period allows parents, other schools, religious authorities and the local community to raise any concerns about their proposed admission arrangements.

Admission authorities must consult with:

• parents of children between the ages of two and eighteen;
• other persons in the relevant area who in the opinion of the admission authority have an interest in the proposed admissions;
• all other admission authorities within the relevant area (except that primary schools need not consult secondary schools);
• whichever of the governing body and the local authority who are not the admission authority;
• any adjoining neighbouring local authorities where the admission authority is the local authority; and
• in the case of schools designated with a religious character, the body or person representing the religion or religious denomination.

What happens next

Any objections or comments will be forwarded to the relevant admissions authority once the consultation period has elapsed, for their consideration and response (if applicable).
