The School Admissions Service is the main point of contact relating to all matters concerning school admissions and the admission appeals process.

Their website has specific information and guides on applying to secondary school for Year 7 pupils, and for in year transfers.

The Service administers the arrangements for children starting primary school and for children transferring from primary to secondary school. Parents who wish to transfer between schools should contact the service for advice.

If you would like to make any changes to a submitted application please call Dudley Council Plus on 0300 555 2345 and ask for the Admissions team. 

Please note that we, as a school, cannot confirm places, chase applications or provide application forms.
