Appeals Information

Consultation on Admission Arrangements for the School Year 2020/2021

Leventhorpe School is consulting on its proposed admissions arrangements for the school year 2020/2021 and is seeking responses from parents/carers, schools and community groups.

The proposed changes are:

1. The introduction of a new criterion (criterion 2) to give priority to children previously looked after by the state abroad and subsequently adopted;
2. The introduction of a new criterion (criterion 6) to give additional priority to children residing within the parishes of Gilston and Eastwick.

The full consultation document can be accessed here.

The consultation period runs from 19th November 2018 - 6th January 2019.  Please send any comments to The Governing Body at the school.

In - Year Admissions

Please note - Leventhorpe is normally heavily over-subscribed in each year group.  We very rarely have any vacancies as the number of students in a year group would need to fall below the agreed admission number before we could offer a place.

Enquiries regarding in-year admission should be made directly to the school.  Continued Interest Lists for each year are maintained at the school. Any places which do become available are filled in accordance with our published admission arrangements.

Please contact the school on 01279 603171 if you would like your child’s name added to the Continued Interest List.
