APPLYING FOR A SECONDARY SCHOOL PLACE
Below is some helpful information for when you need to start looking for a Secondary School place for your child.
Before you apply
Deciding on your School preferences
You should include five Schools on your application, and list them in order of preference. If you only express a preference for a single School, you risk being offered a place that you are unhappy with. You should also choose Schools that your child has a realistic chance of getting in to.
Walsall Council has a duty to offer your child a School place. They will always try to meet your first choice, but sometimes they receive more applications than the School has places available. They'll then try to offer your next highest preference. If they cannot meet any of your preferences, they will offer you a place in the nearest School to your home address with available places. They will will also put your child’s name on the waiting list for your preferred Schools.
Applying for schools outside Walsall
If you live in Walsall but any of your preferred schools are outside Walsall Borough, you can still apply in the same way. Walsall Council runs a co-ordinated admissions scheme with neighbouring councils and admissions authorities, so you only have to complete one application.
