Applications open for September 2024 secondary school places

Parents and carers are being asked to submit their applications for a year 7 school place for their child with the national application deadline on 31st October fast approaching.

Children born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 are due to transfer to a secondary school in September 2024.

As soon as the application process is made live, applicants can express preferences for up to five secondary schools.

The Walsall on-line application portal allows applications to be made for a place at any secondary school in or outside the borough.  

If you live in Walsall, please complete your on-line application by 31 October 2023. If you live outside Walsall, you should submit an application through your home local authority listing all of your preferred schools. Councillor Statham, Portfolio Holder for Education and Skills said:

“The application process for secondary schools opened on 4 September and I urge parents and carers to make sure that you maximise your chances of obtaining a year 7 place at one of your preferred schools by submitting your application prior to the national application deadline of 31 October 2023.

“It’s really important that you utilise all of the preferences to ensure that your child is allocated a school that you would be happy for them to attend.

“Applications received after this deadline will still be processed by the Admissions and Education Sufficiency Team but those applications submitted on time will be prioritised for processing.”

Further information and details of how to contact Walsall’s Admissions and Education Sufficiency Team can be found on the Walsall Council school admissions website.
