Admissions & Oversubscription Criteria

If the number of preferences for the school is more than the number of places available, places will be allocated according to certain criteria as outlined in the documents above.

To view the complete document giving full details for the criteria in the event of oversubscription, read the relevant documentation available above.   

Appeals

If the school has advised you that we are not able to offer your child a place, parents do of course have the right to appeal. If you feel after reading the oversubscription criteria that you have a sufficiently strong case for an independent panel to overrule the school’s decision then please write a letter of appeal to The Clerk to the Board of Directors at The Canterbury Academy with any supplementary paperwork. Appeals, where possible, will be held within 30 school days for in year admissions and 40 school days when transitioning to the school.
