In Year Admissions

Parents or carers seeking to be admitted to our school ‘in year’ may make an application directly to us using the appropriate application form. This application will be processed in line with the procedure outlined in the determined admission arrangements and parents and carers need to be aware that in the case of transfers between local schools any date set for joining the new school may be after the next term or half term holiday and those parents/carers are responsible for ensuring that their child continues to receive appropriate education in the interim.

You can find more information on Staffordshire County Council's website here on in year admissions.

If in doubt please telephone or email the school and we will be happy to advise you.
