School Admission Arrangements 2022/2023

The Vale Council is consulting on a proposed change to school admission arrangements for community schools for the academic year 2022/2023 in respect of a change to secondary school catchment areas and a minor amendment to the primary school oversubscription criteria.


The proposed changes will ensure a more even distribution of school places to meet future demand for pupils within a defined catchment area requiring a school place. The amendment will prioritise those living closest to a primary school where the number of applications from within catchment area exceeds the number of places available that will support attendance at a child's local school.

The Vale of Glamorgan Council arrange our school admissions. If you wish to enquire about your child joining us at Albert Primary then please click on the link below and follow the advice on the Council's website.
