Revised Admission Arrangements from September 2015

The Governing Body of Chorlton High School is the Admission Authority for Chorlton High School and as such is required to draft, consult on and determine the admission arrangements for the school. 

The Governing Body of Chorlton High School is committed to comprehensive education and works in close partnership with Manchester Local Authority's (LA) Coordinated Admissions Scheme. 

Where there are more applicants than places available the LA will apply the oversubscription criteria in order to decide which applicants will be offered places. Our oversubscription criteria is as follows:

  • Category 1 - children who are looked after by a Local Authority and children who were previously looked after by a Local Authority. Previously looked after children are children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order)
  • Category 2 - children with exceptional medical/social needs
  • Category 3 - children with a sibling at the school
  • Category 4 – all other children

Copies of admission arrangements for all schools/academies in Manchester can be found on the school/academy website and the LA's website. They are also available on request from the relevant school/academy and the LA. 

These admission arrangements apply to applicants seeking a place in Year 7 up to Year 11 at Chorlton High School, Manchester.
