Consultation for The Downs School’s Admissions Arrangements for 2019/20

The Downs School is currently consulting on its admissions arrangements for the academic year 2019/20. The consultation period will run from Friday, 15 December 2017 to Wednesday, 31 January 2018. The consultation involves two changes to our admissions arrangements for 2018/19:

Please note that The Downs School catchment area is unique to The Downs School and, although in general the school catchment areas in West Berkshire border each other, this is not a rule that must be followed. The proposed new catchment area will overlap parts of the existing Kennet School and Trinity school catchment area and children who live in these areas will live in 2 secondary school catchment areas.

The consultation document and associated maps are attached. The proposed changes are all in red. Any responses to the proposed changes should be made to Tracy Silverthorne, PA to Deputy Head/Admissions Administrator, either by writing to her at The Downs School or by e-mailing her via tsilverthorne@thedownsschool.org. The closing date for the receipt of all responses is Wednesday, 31st January 2018
