Admissions Policies 2022 to 2023 Consultation

Community or Voluntary Controlled Schools

The County Council is consulting on a change to the admissions policy approved by Cabinet in February 2020.

The County Council is consulting on removing the statement in the current arrangements in relation to  oversubscription at Wolverley CE Secondary School, where currently a maximum of 10% of places can be awarded to children living in the Wyre Forest District Council area whose parents have specifically asked for a place for reasons of religious affiliation. 

The County Council also wishes to consult on the reduction of the Published Admission Number (PAN) at a number of its schools and also draw your attention to any Academy, Foundation, Free or Voluntary Aided school that may also be consulting on a PAN reduction.  The details on the proposed reductions can be viewed below:
