Applications are now being taken for secondary school places for students due to start Year 7 in 2021, and education providers in Wolverhampton are inviting prospective pupils and parents to see what they have to offer.

Parents or guardians of pupils who are currently in Year 6 and are due to start at secondary school next year have until 31 October, 2020 to apply for a place at their preferred schools.

To apply, please log on to School admissions and complete the short application process.

To help parents and pupils make their decision, all secondary schools in Wolverhampton will be holding ‘virtual’ and appointment based open days and evenings to give them the opportunity to see what’s on offer. Further details are available by contacting individual secondary schools directly or visiting their websites. 

Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “If your child has just started their final year at primary or junior school, now is the time to start thinking about their secondary school place for next year. 

“That may seem a long way off, but the closing date for applications for secondary school places is 31 October, 2020.

“This is one of the most important decisions you can make for your child, so please don't miss the deadline. Ensuring applications are made by the end of October can increase the chances of securing a place at a preferred school.”

He added: “All Wolverhampton’s secondary schools will be holding open days and open evenings, either virtually or by appointment, over the coming weeks, and I’d urge parents to see for themselves the facilities on offer and select their preferred schools before the application deadline.”
