Admissions Consultation

Consultation on School Admission Arrangements for 2019-2020

Explanation of Proposed Changes

The Board of Trustees for the Coombe Secondary Schools Academy Trust (Coombe Academy Trust) is consulting on proposed admission arrangements for Coombe Boys’ School, Coombe Girls’ School and Knollmead Primary School for 2019-2020,  as determined by the School Admissions Code and The School Admissions (Admission Arrangements and Co-ordination of Admission Arrangements) (England) Regulations 2012.

There is one proposed change for 2019-2020:  to change the word ‘school’ to ‘Trust’ in oversubscription criterion 3 so that it is worded as follows: ‘places will be offered to children of permanent staff where the member of staff has been employed by the Trust for two or more years at the time at which the application for admission to the school is made, and/or the member of staff is recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage’.

There are no other proposed changes to the admission arrangements for 2019-20.

If you have any comments on the proposed changes to our admission arrangements, please write to

Mrs L Kidd, Clerk to Trustees at:

      Coombe Girls’ School, Clarence Avenue, New Malden, Surrey KT3 3TU

 or email:   admissionsconsultation@coombegirlsschool.org

by 12.00 noon on Friday 26th January 2018 so that we can determine our arrangements.
