Admissions Consultation to begin

UTC@MediaCityUK is proposing to have a larger post-16 student body and a smaller number of pre-16 students than was originally planned. There will be 500 post-16 students and 220 pre-16 students at the UTC when it reaches full capacity.

The anticipated pupil number build-up in future would look as follows:

  Y1 Y2 Y3 Y4
  2015/16 2016/17 2017/18 2018/19
Year 10 120 110 110 110
Year 11 0 120 110 110
Year 12 100 150 250 250
Year 13 0 150 150 250
Total 220 530 620 720

 

We therefore plan to amend our Admissions Policy for 2016 accordingly and consult on the changes.  A copy of the revised admissions policy is attached.  The only section of the policy that is being amended is the PAN section, which will simply read:

“Published Admission Number

Year 10

The Published Admissions Number (PAN) for entry into Year 10 in September 2016 is 110 pupils. For entry into Year 10 in each admission year, all applicants will be admitted if fewer applications than the PAN are received.

Year 12

The Published Admissions Number (PAN) for entry into Year 12 in September 2016 is 150 pupils.

The UTC will publish its admissions number annually in line with the School Admissions Code.”

Our consultation period will run from 18 December 2014 to 19 February 2015. Responses can be made directly to the UTC Trust by emailing information@utcmediacityuk.org.uk or by writing to UTC@MediaCityUK, C/O The Aldridge Foundation, 10 Piccadilly, London, W1J 0DD. Alternatively you can complete and return this form.
