Oversubscription criteria:

The governors will give priority to children with a statement of special educational needs which names the school on the statement. Parents must visit the school, by arrangement, before naming Jack Hunt School on the statement, so that they are confident that the school has the facilities and resources to meet their child’s needs.

1.     Children in care (children in public care) and children who were in care, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order).

2.     Children living in the catchment areas for primary schools:-

Gladstone Primary School, Highlees Primary School, Longthorpe Primary School, Middleton Primary School, Ravensthorpe Primary School, Thorpe Primary School and West Town Primary School.   This includes children living within the above catchments who may be attending Sacred Heart Primary School and other primary schools.

3.     Up to 5 places in any one academic year for children of permanent employees whose place of work is Jack Hunt School at the time of admission. Where the member of staff has been employed for more than 2 years and/or has been recruited to fill a vacant post for which there is a demonstrable skill shortage. Where more than five applications are received preference will be given to permanent employees with the longest period of continuous employment by the school.

4.     Where the child has a brother or sister attending the school at time of admission (the definition of brother or sister is contained in the local authority admissions booklet issued by your primary school).

5.       Any other applicant.

 Where the number of applicants exceeds the number of places within any of the above criteria priority will be given to those living nearest the school measured in a straight line between the centre of the home address and the centre of the school site.

The published admission number for Year 7 to 11 in 2017 will be 330.

The application procedures and timescales for Year 7 are described in the coordinated scheme for secondary schools admissions set out in the city council’s admissions booklet. 

Late applications for Year 7 will be allocated a place if possible, but if there are no places available they will be offered a place by the city council at the nearest school to their home address at which there is a place available, measured by a straight line from their home.  Parents will be required to complete an application form and details will be sent to the nearest school for consideration.  If the parent wants their child to be added to a reserve list for Jack Hunt School they will be added to the list in criteria order.
