Consultation on Admission Arrangements for Coloma Convent Girls’ School 2020/2021
The Coloma governing body is consulting on the proposed admission arrangements for entry to Coloma in the academic year 2020/2021 (year 7 to year 11).
There is no change to the policy for the 2019/2020 admission round which is currently in progress.
The consultation period will run from Monday 19 November 2018 to Monday 14 January 2019. You are invited to advise the school of your views and comments on any aspect of the proposed admission arrangements.
The proposed admission arrangements are set out in the following documents:
- Admission Policy 2020/2021
- Supplementary Information Form
- Request for Information from Priest Form
The proposed changes are:
Page 1: the third paragraph will be amended to read:
“Coloma would welcome applications from throughout the community, regardless of faith or background; however, Applicants need to be aware that Coloma is a heavily over-subscribed school and that Catholic Candidates are prioritised above non-Catholic Candidates when there is over-subscription. The school received 425 applications from Catholic Candidates for entry in September 2018 which meant that offers of places in Year 7 were made to Catholic Candidates only. For entry in September 2019 the school received [number to be confirmed when data available] applications from Catholic Candidates.”
Page 5: Section 1 of Appendix 4 will be amended to read:
|1. Sacrament of Baptism (maximum 10 points)|
|Baptism before or on the Candidate’s first birthday||10|
|Baptism after the Candidate’s first birthday||5|
We would welcome your feedback both on the above proposed changes and on the arrangements generally. Please respond by emailing email@example.com. Please note that you must submit your response during the consultation period which ends on Monday 14 January 2019.
Responses to the consultation will be considered by the governing body. The 2020-2021 admission arrangements will be determined by 28 February 2019. The determined admission arrangements will be published on the school website by 15 March 2019.
