Letter: Academy admissions decided by governors

Have your say

Greg Mulholland will find it most difficult to respond to constituent concerns about admissions to Horsforth School.

Horsforth School is described as an independent academy and therefore is not subject to democratic control through a local authority. Despite residents of North West Leeds paying UK taxes they are not now guaranteed a place in this local school for their children.

Governors of academies develop their own admissions policies within government guidelines. It is the governors at Horsforth School who decide who attends Horsforth School not Leeds City Council, not local residents, not parents of children who live close by and certainly not Greg Mulholland.
