Secondary School catchment areas have not been changed significantly since the city became a unitary authority in 1997.

The council has closed five secondary schools since then and operated a system of priority and linked areas for school admissions.

The proposals we are putting forward will provide a single secondary catchment school for each address in the city.

The current catchment area for The Samworth Enterprise Academy (primary) overlaps with Marriot Primary School’s catchment area – the Academy is proposing to remove the overlap.

Why we are consulting

To promote fair access to  secondary school places.

To provide a single secondary catchment area school for each address in the city.

To remove secondary “linked areas”.

To align primary and secondary catchment areas.
