Admissions to DGAT academies

The Trust publishes annually admissions arrangements for academies.  Parents wishing to apply for a place in a reception class in a DGAT academy must do so via Gloucestershire Local Authority.  Copies of policy documentation can be found by visiting the relevant academy website.  

Where the Trust intends to make changes to an admissions policy for a subsequent year, the Local Governing Body, on behalf of the Trust, will undertake a public consultation.  Whiteshill Primary Academy is proposing changes to its admission's policy for 2018.  For more information regarding the consultation, click here.
