Admissions to schools

Admissions to schools

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 2016, including deadlines for applications and offer dates, please click on the prospectus links which can be found below our contact details.

 

 The online service is now closed and will re-open on:

8th September for Secondary School Admissions 2016

14th September for Reception Admissions 2016 

2nd November for Nursery Admissions 2016

Follow this link to apply online for a Nursery, Reception or Year 7 place for September 2016

The In-Year Team manages applications for children who need to change schools at any other time. The In-Year team can offer help and advice on how to find a school place for your child.


The Admissions Team also give advice about applying for free school meals and transport to school. For further information about travelling to school, please click on the link under ‘policies and protocols’ which can be found towards the bottom of this page.
