Welcome to Worcestershire On-Line School Admissions facility for School Entry in September 2019

The On-Line School Admission facility is now open for parents to be able to create their own account and submit an application for a school place for September 2019. This facility is for parents wishing to apply for the normal point of entry for a school, for example, children starting school for the first time, transferring from a first school to a middle school, transferring from a primary school to a high school, transferring from middle school to a high school or transferring from an infant school to a junior school. This facility is not to be used to make an application to transfer schools in-year. The in-year application process is completely seperate and can be found at In-Year Admissions Process

All applications for school places must be made to the Local Authority where you live. E.g. If you live in Worcestershire you must apply to WCC for any school place, including those schools outside of the Worcestershire area. If you live in another Local Authority area, such as Birmingham, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Dudley etc. you will need to apply directly to your home Local Authority and not Worcestershire, even if your preferred schools are in Worcestershire. Your home Local Authority will send your application information directly to us after the relevant closing date.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THE OVERSUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA, WHICH IS RELEVANT TO THE SCHOOLS YOU WISH TO APPLY FOR, PRIOR TO MAKING YOUR APPLICATION. THE RELEVANT POLICIES FOR ALL SCHOOLS IN WORCESTERSHIRE ARE AVAILABLE ON THE WCC WEBSITE.
