The school’s current admissions policy is operated by the County Council as local education authority (LA) on behalf of the school. Information about the arrangements for admission are set out in the “Parents` Guide to Education in Shropshire” copies of which are on the Shropshire Council website

Whilst it is helpful if parents can let school know at an early date if they would like their children to attend in due course, offers of places can only be confirmed by the LA in the academic year before the child is due to start school.

Mid-year applications are dealt with directly by the school, which will provide the relevant Shropshire mid-year transfer paperwork and confirm a place, please contact or 01630817640 and ask for details.
