Schools Admissions

Stoke-on-Trent Admissions is divided into two teams, the ‘Normal Round’ and the ‘In-Year' Team.

The Normal Round Team manages applications for children going into Nursery, Reception and Year 7 each September - the 'normal' intake points.

You can use this service if you live in and pay your council tax to Stoke-on-Trent City Council. If you pay your council tax to another Local Authority, for example, Staffordshire Moorlands, Cheshire East etc. please apply for a school place using their system.

For further information about applying for a ‘normal round’ place for September 2017, including deadlines for applications and offer dates, please click on the prospectus links which can be found below our contact details.
