The deadline for applications for places for students who are due to start Year 7 in September 2023 is the Monday 31 October, 2022, and parents are asked to submit theirs before this date.
Councillor Chris Burden, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “If your child is in their final year at primary or junior school, you don’t have long to submit your application for a secondary school place, if you haven’t already.
“While making the transfer to secondary school may seem a long way off, the closing date for applications is little more than a week away, so time really is of the essence.
“Over 85 percent of parents have already completed their applications, but many have not yet started. In addition, a further 350 have begun their applications but have not yet submitted them. The process is quick and easy, and ensuring applications are made before the deadline will increase your chances of securing a place at a preferred school.”
To apply for a school place, parents should log on to School admissions and complete the short application process. Parents and guardians will be notified of their child’s allocated school place on 1 March, 2023.
Applying online has a number of benefits. Applications are made through a secure website and can be viewed and edited online up to the closing date for applications of 31 October, 2022. Applicants can also access their child's school allocation online on 1 March, 2023, rather than having to wait for the post.
