Admissions Policy 2017-2018


The published number of pupils to admit at Mildmay Junior School is 90 pupils per cohort. There is no guarantee of a place for children living in the priority admission area.


Looked after Children and children attending the partner Infant Schools who request a place at Mildmay Junior School will be allocated a place providing an application is received by the closing date.


In the event of over subscription any remaining places will be allocated using the following criteria in the order given:


1. Children living in the priority admission area* with a sibling attending the school or the partner Infant Schools;

2. Other children living in the priority admission area;

3. Children living outside the priority admission area with a sibling attending the school or the partner Infant Schools;

4. Remaining applications.


In the event of oversubscription within any of the above criteria, priority will be determined by straight line distance from home to school, those living closest being given the highest priority.


Exceptional medical circumstances (supported by medical evidence) may override the above (other than Looked after Children).


For applications received after the start of Year 3 Looked After Children will be given priority ahead of all other applicants. Information regarding the process of applying for a place can be found on the Essex admissions pages:


 *It is proposed that the entire St. John’s hospital development will form part of the Mildmay Junior School priority admissions area.
