  • The proposed admission numbers for Primary and Secondary schools for September 2016
  • The proposed admission zone changes to primary schools in Ingleby Barwick
  • The proposed admission zone arrangements for secondary schools in the South of the Borough
  • The proposed Admission Policy for 2016/17

Stockton Council has drawn up the proposals following a Scrutiny Review by the Council’s Children and Young People Select Committee.
