What happens next

Thank you for taking the time to respond to the consultation on admission arrangements for 2023.

After the closing date, responses will be collated and presented to the County Council's decision making Cabinet on 25 January 2022. It will decide whether or not to proceed with the proposed changes as well as determining the admission arrangements for all community and voluntary controlled schools for which no changes are proposed. Cabinet’s decision will then need to be ratified by the full County Council on 8 February 2022. Once determined the final admission arrangements for all community and voluntary controlled schools will be placed on Surrey's website at www.surreycc.gov.uk/admissions
