Saltley Academy Admissions Policy 

The number of places available is called the Published Admission Number (PAN). The PAN for September 2022 is: 

  • Year 7 – 270 
  • Year 8 – 270 
  • Year 9 – 270 
  • Year 10 – 240 
  • Year 11 – 240 

The proposed PAN for Year 7 in 2023 is 270. 

The local authority is the admission authority for community and voluntary controlled schools. Children are admitted to schools in accordance with parental preference as far as possible. However, where there are more applications than there are places available, places at community and voluntary controlled schools will be offered based on the following order of priority: 

  • Criterion 1: Looked after children or children who were previously looked after children 
  • Criterion 2: Children (siblings) with a brother or sister already at the school who will still be in attendance at the time the child enters the school. 
  • Criterion 3: Children who live nearest the school. 


Within each of the categories above, priority is given to those who live nearest to the school. 

Full details of the Admissions policy for this school can be found below:
