RESPONSIBILTIES DELEGATED TO THE ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE
The Admissions Committee shall comprise at least three Governors (one being a Foundation Governor) plus the Headmaster.
No decisions may be taken if insufficient governors are in attendance. A quorum for this Committee means a minimum of three Governors (including the Headmaster).
It will be responsible for determining all matters relating to:
1 The drafting of the Admissions Policy of the College to be submitted to the Full Governing Body for approval;
2 The admission or refusal of children to the College, within the terms of the current Admissions Policy;
3 The submission to the Local Authority of the prioritised list of applicants in the first and second round of applications on the basis of information received;
4 The representation of the College at any appeals against the Governors’ refusal to admit and the consideration of any issues which arise from those appeals.
All Governors are linked to a Department within the College.
Governors are in regular communication with the Leaders of those Departments. They meet with them to go through, in detail, the Evaluation of the Department, including all examination results and to discuss the departmental improvement plans. Towards the end of the year, Governors review the progress the Department has made towards it’s goals.
Governors visit their Link areas to see their Improvement Plan in action, going into lessons and talking to pupils and staff.
