In the case of all applications, the parent should forward the form to the School Admissions team at City of Wolverhampton Council (CWC).

Complete the application form and ensure Section 8 of the form is completed by your child’s current or most recent school.

If a place cannot be offered at a preferred school then, in accordance with the City of Wolverhampton Council’s admission arrangements, a place will be allocated at the closest Wolverhampton school with places available.

You need to look at the published admission criteria for each school you are placing as a preference. Sometimes you may be required to submit extra information (such as a baptism certificate or letter from your church) before your application can be considered under a particular admission criterion.
