Don’t forget to get secondary school applications in for 2016 place

October 13, 2015

Parents or guardians of pupils who are due to start secondary school for the first time in 2016 are reminded that they must apply for a place for their child by the end of this month.

The window for applications closes on Saturday 31 October, 2015, and parents who have not yet done so should start thinking now about which secondary school they would prefer their child to attend.

 

Councillor Claire Darke, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, said: “If your child started their final year at primary or junior school last month, you should now be considering which secondary school you’d prefer them to join in September 2016.

 

“This is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. The closing date for applications is the end of this month, and ensuring your application is in before then deadline will increase the chance of your child securing a place at one of your preferred schools.”

 

Parents or guardians must apply for their choice of secondary school online at www.wolverhampton.gov.uk/admissions. Applicants will be notified of their allocated school place on 1 March 2016.

 

Councillor Darke added: “We’ve got some fantastic secondary schools in Wolverhampton, all of which have undergone a major transformation in recent years.

 

“We invested £270m in new and refurbished accommodation through the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) programme, providing modern learning environments that our young people can be proud of.


“The council is also working hard to raise school standards across Wolverhampton, and 76% of our secondary schools are now rated good or outstanding by Ofsted, compared to just 57% two years ago.”
