The Grange Academy is a non-selective comprehensive school, with an agreed Published Admissions Number (PAN) of 210 new Year 7 students per academic year.
All Year 7 admissions applications are considered against these criteria. After the admission of students with Statements of Special Educational Needs where The Grange Academy is named on the Statement, the criteria will be applied in this order:
Looked After Children and previously Looked After Children in accordance with Section 22 of the Children Act 1989.
Pupils who, on the date of admission, will have a sibling (i.e. a natural brother or sister, or a half brother or sister, or a legally adopted brother or sister or half-brother or sister, or step brother or sister who will be living with them at the same address at the date of their entry to the academy) on the roll of the academy.
The remaining places will be offered to pupils with the nearest distance measurement on the basis of proximity; i.e. pupils who live the nearest distance at the close of the Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) admission application date as designated by HCC’s computerised mapping system.
These rules are applied in the order they are printed above. If more children qualify under a particular rule than there are places available, a tie break will be used by applying the next rule to those children.
