Admission Arrangements

As Burrowmoor is part of a multi-academy trust, the Active Learning Trust is responsible for establishing the admission criteria and the oversubscription criteria for the academy, in line with guidance from the Department of Education’s School Admissions Code.  This process is supported by Cambridgeshire County Council.  A copy of the school Admission Arrangement document is given below and this includes details of the school Published Admission Number (PAN) and the school’s oversubscription criteria.
