How to apply for a school place in the normal round of admissions 

ALL children born between September 1, 2012, and August 31, 2013, need to apply for a place before they can start school in September 2017, as places are no longer automatically allocated.

Applications can be made onlinewhen applications open from 1 September 2016 up until the closing date, 15th January 2017 by visiting www.worcestershire.gov.uk/schooladmissions or click here

If you do not have access to the internet Application Forms are available from the School, Local Worcestershire Hub or by request on Telephone number 01905 822700.

The parents of pupils resident outside Worcestershire, but who wish to apply for a place at any Worcestershire school, must complete an application form provided by the “home” LA.  (The “home” LA is defined as the Local Authority relevant to the Child’s home address.)  The “home” LA will ensure that the application details are passed onto Worcestershire LA for consideration in the allocation of school places.

When are decisions made?

School Offer Notification date is the 16th April 2017. 

 

Is there a waiting list for schools that have too many applicants?

Waiting lists for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools, are maintained by the Pupil Admissions and Transfers Section and are operated in line with the admissions criteria for the school.  Parents must apply in writing direct to the Pupil Admissions and Transfers Section if they wish to put their son/daughter on a waiting list.  Only on receipt of an acknowledgement slip from Pupil Admissions will that child be on the list.  The LA will not accept application requests by telephone or via email.

If you wish your child to be on the waiting list for the next term you will need to confirm this in writing at the beginning of each term to:-

Pupil Admissions and Transfers Section,
Children’s Services Directorate
PO Box 73
Worcester WR5 2YA

Application letters will be destroyed at the end of the preceding term so the waiting list is accurate and active.
