A consultation ran from 8 January 2020 to 28 February 2020 in relation to proposed admission arrangements for September 2021 onwards.

Following the consultation, a consultation report (pdf) was drafted which described the consultation process and feedback received.

A Fairness and Equality Impact Assessment (FEIA) (pdf) was also undertaken and both of these documents were used to determine the admission arrangements for 2021.
