For entry into Year 7 for September 2019 Ada Lovelace CofE High School has an agreed admission number of 125 students. All applicants will be admitted if 125 or fewer apply. Oversubscription criteria will be applied if more than this number apply.
After receiving feedback from a range of people with an interest in the new school, Trust Directors decided that the school should have an 'open' admissions policy (oversubscription criteria) as opposed to one based on faith criteria.
