REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ADMISSION OF PUPILS TO WIGAN UTC
PROCEDURE FOR ADMITTING PUPILS TO WIGAN UTC
WIGAN UTC is part of the Northern Schools’ Trust. The following admission number for WIGAN UTC has been determined by the governing body for the year 2019/20 for Year 10 and Year 12.
The planned admission number is 125 pupils. WIGAN UTC is unable to admit more than this number as it would prejudice the efficient education of the children and/or efficient use of resources.
The planned admission number is 125 pupils
In 2019, the Wigan UTC will operate a sixth form for a total of 250 students. 125 places overall will be available in Year 12 (the year 12 “capacity”) including for its own pupils progressing from year 11. A minimum number of 90 places will be available for external candidates. In such circumstances it will apply the same academic entry requirements as it does to pupils already on roll in the UTC and, if a tiebreak is necessary to determine who is admitted, it will apply oversubscription criteria.
The same academic entry requirements will apply to external applicants as to pupils already on roll in WIGAN UTC and, if oversubscribed, WIGAN UTC will apply the oversubscription criteria.
