Admissions Procedures


We are happy with the high number of parents that choose our school.

Online applications are now the preferred method of making a preference for schools at the normal age of entry. Last year, over 80% of applications for high school places were made online. Parents who apply online are able to receive email notification of their school place on the national offer day, rather than through the post.  Information for parents on how to apply for an in-year place for their child at our school can be found here along with the application form. 

Applications for secondary school places can be made online through the following page on the Staffordshire Web up until 31 October 2021, using the UID number provided. Applications for primary (and middle) school places will be open from 1 November 2021 until 15 January 2022.

Nursery applications will be administered by Shobnall Primary & Nursery School directly, not Staffordshire County Council.  Please see links below.
