Home Address:  The address used will be the permanent address where the child normally lives, not a temporary address or the address of a carer or relative.  In the case of parents who are separated and where child-care arrangements are shared between two addresses, in the priority admissions area, the average of the distances of the two addresses from the school will be used for the purposes of determining priority for admission.  Where one of the addresses is outside the priority admission area, the applicant will be regarded as living outside this area and the average of distances of the two addresses from the school will be used for determining priority for admission.

Applicants who move into the priority admission area, after the date of registration, who submit an on-time application to their home Local Authority, including Urmston Grammar as a preference, will be given consideration from the address given on the original registration made direct to the school until after the first round of offers.  The new address will only be considered if the following evidence and legal documentation in relation to the change of residency is submitted to the school;

  • evidence and legal documentation to the effect that they have purchased the property along with proof of disposal of the previous home.
  • for leasing agreements, a legal contract for a minimum of 24 months without a break clause is required along with proof of disposal of the previous home, and
  • documentation to prove the applicant and their parent(s)/carer(s) became resident at the new home.

Proof of residency will be required.  Parents must inform the School of any changes to their address or circumstances.  An allocated place may be subsequently withdrawn if incorrect or misleading information has been provided, which has led to the offer of a place or has advantaged the applicant in the priority offer for oversubscription. 

Applicants who move further away from the School after the date of application will be considered from their new address with immediate effect.

Please note – If there are two or more applications that cannot be separated by the oversubscription criteria outlined above, the school will use the distance between the school and a child’s home to decide between applicants.  Priority will be given to children who live closest to the school.
