The Duston School Admissions Policy Consulation for 2023

The Duston School is consulting on the school’s admission policies for 2023.  The consultation period will run from Monday 8th November until Sunday 19th December 2021; during this time, parents are invited to express their views and any concerns about the proposed changes to the admission arrangements at The Duston School.


To this end, the following amendments to our admission arrangements have been proposed:

We propose to remove category 5 and 6 in which applications are broken down by postcode area. This will apply to both primary and secondary phase applications.

This is being proposed as the governing board believe that this will allow the school to serve the local community more effectively by allowing students that live closest to the school to receive places.

A full version of the proposed changes to the admission arrangements, as well as the rationale behind them, are shown in the documents contained below.

All responses to the consultation should be made in writing and submitted before 3pm on 19th December to:
