Admissions Information

Admission arrangements 


The admission arrangements for our school can be found on the Shropshire Council website under School Admissions – please click here to access the page.


Our Published Admission Number is 90. If there are more applications for places than are available within the admission limit, then priority is given based on our Admissions Criteria. To access this information please click here to access our Admissions Policy or click on the documents below.




There are no changes proposed to Shropshire Council’s admission arrangements for 2023/24 for community and voluntary controlled schools requiring consultation. However, the Council is co-ordinating a consultation exercise for own admission authority schools, such as academies, whose governing bodies are responsible for setting their admission arrangements and who wish to make changes to those arrangements.


We wish to notify all parents/carers that the consultation will begin on 6 December 2021 and continue for more than 6 weeks until 21 January 2022.


The consultation documents and further information can be found on the Shropshire Council website in the link to Consultation on Admission Arrangements 2023.


To make comments on any of the proposed changes by Friday 21 January 2022 e-mail, or contact the school directly, or write to: School Admissions, Shropshire Council, Shirehall, Abbey Foregate, SHREWSBURY SY2 6ND.
