Applying for a place at our school

All applications for Reception places are made through Staffordshire County Council who apply our admissions criteria to all applications and notify parents directly of allocated places.


Online applications are now the preferred method of making a preference for schools at the normal age of entry. Last year, around 92% of applications for Secondary and Primary School applications 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.


To apply for a reception place starting in the 2023/2024 academic year applications are open between 1 November 2023 and 15 January 2024.


If you have any questions please call us 01543 279402 or email: [email protected]
