Consultation on The Compass Partnership of Schools’ Admission Policy

Proposed changes for September 2020 entry

The Compass Partnership of Schools, as a multi-academy trust (MAT), operates as the admission authority for the schools within the MAT. The Compass Partnership of Schools has agreed to remain in-line with the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s admissions procedures, for all of its schools. When a local authority, through a consultation process, makes a change to their admissions process, The Compass Partnership of Schools must conduct its own consultation if it plans to adopt the same changes.

The proposed changes in the document below are to adopt local changes that have recently taken place in the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 academic years, in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

Please note that for this consultation process it is only the area listed below where comments are sought. Please send your comments to contact@compass-partnership.com

The areas for which comments are sought are;
