How to Apply

Summary of application process

Pupil admissions will open for Reception year (age 4) by 10th November 2021. 

You may choose to apply either through:

1. A Faith category place (50% of all places). If you are a practising member of a religion you may choose to apply through this category. Please complete Steps 1 and 2.

2. An Open place (the remaining 50% of places). If you are not a practising member of a faith please complete Step 1 only.

STEP 1 - For all applicants

All applicants must complete the Preference/Application Form for school’s admissions from your Local Authority, where you live, before 15th January 2022. 

The Local Authority Preference/Application full guidance and form for school admissions may be found on the following websites (depending on where you live), for example:

Wolverhampton: https://www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/education-and-schools/school-admissions

Please ensure if you are applying under the staff or sibling category this is stated when completing your preferences. 

Please see our Admissions Policy for Academic Year 2022-2023 

STEP 2 - For Faith category places only

If you are applying for a place based on faith, (50% of all places), please kindly complete this application by 15th January 2022 for age 4 (Reception) places.

1. Download and complete the Confirmation Slip. You will then need to have it countersigned by the appropriate religious authority (from your place of worship). This should include both the relevant signature and stamp from the place of worship. 

2. Click and complete the Supplementary Information Form. In addition you will be required to upload the signed and stamped confirmation slip. Please read Instructions on how to complete your Supplementary Information Form.

Please note the Supplementary Information Form will need to be fully and correctly completed within the specified deadlines. All other forms will unfortunately have to be legally rejected. In this circumstance your child’s place will automatically be considered within the ‘open category’.
