Consultation on our Admissions Policies for 2023-24

Below you will see a link to our proposed admissions policies for 2023-24.  We are consulting on these between 1 November 2021 and 7 January 2022 and invite any parent or other person with an interest in our admission arrangements to read the policy and make any comments you wish.   Where there are changes, the text is in red – either something we propose to add or, if it has a line through it, something we propose to remove.

Teignmouth Community School Exeter Road (Secondary) | Draft School Admissions Policy | 2023-24

Teignmouth Community School Exeter Road (Sixth Form – TCS6) | Draft Admissions Policy | 2023-24

Other than changes in red and dates moving forward a year, the way our policy will work is the same as in the previous year, 2022-23, which you can also see here.

If you have any comments, you can make them to Devon County Council which is co-ordinating the consultation.  Further information is at www.devon.gov.uk/admissionarrangements.  You will be able to view the proposed policies for all state-funded schools in Devon and the Local Authorities policies there too.

The consultation ends on 7 January 2022 and all policies must be determined by 28 February 2022 and published in the same places by 15 March 2022.


Admissions Information

Teignmouth Community School, Exeter Road welcomes prospective students and their parents, guardians or carers to experience our School on both open events and individual tours. Our open day events or seeing the School in action and being able to talk with staff and students will enable you to get a real sense of our community and what a warm, friendly and exciting school TCS is.

Our Next Steps evening for pupils in years 5 and 6 looking at secondary schools will be on the evening of Tuesday 28 September.  We hope to be able to welcome visitors to our site but we are currently awaiting guidance and considering our risk assessment in light of the pandemic.  We will be offering tours of the school site shortly after this date and more detail will be published shortly.

If you would like us to inform you when we are able to carry out school tours again so that you can come and take a look around TCS Exeter Road, please click on the link below and we will update you by email.
