Where can I find the Worcestershire In-Year scheme?

You will find full details in Section 9 of the 2020/2021 Information for Parents Book.

How can my child be placed on a waiting list for a particular school?

Waiting lists for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools are maintained by the School Admissions and Transfers Section, and parents need to apply in order to be included. For full details on how to apply please refer to Section 9 of the Information for Parents Book.

Waiting lists for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools are operated in line with the admissions criteria as published in the Information for Parents Book. Please refer to the relevant section for full details.

Waiting lists for Academy, Foundation, Free and Voluntary Aided Schools, are maintained by the individual schools and parents will need to contact the school directly in order to be included.

You should be aware that a school waiting list is an active document. As parents request for their children to be included on the list, the position of an individual child already on the list can change. A waiting list does not give priority based simply on the date an application was added to the list.

Applications for 2020

Standard in-year applications for school places in September 2020 will be considered following the Summer 2020 half term school holiday. We would therefore advise that to ensure that your application will be considered for September, you apply mid-June. If you apply later in July and/or during the school holidays, there is no guarantee that your application will be processed in time for a September start.

Which ages and year groups does In-Year encompass?

Please see the Tier Groups by District page and find out which year group your child will be in.
