HELP YOUR CHILD TO MAKE AN IMPORTANT DECISION ABOUT THEIR FUTURE
Applications are being taken for City of Wolverhampton secondary schools, for students due to start Year 7 in 2024, and prospective pupils and parents are invited to see what they have to offer.
The transfer from primary to secondary education is an important and often worrying time for parents and children. Attending the open days before making your application is an important part of choosing your child’s school and will help with any questions you may have. You will be able to take a tour of the school, speak with the head teacher and meet some current pupils and teachers. This is a great opportunity to see what’s on offer and get a feel for the school and their facilities.
A full list of the city’s secondary schools, including contact details and dates and times are available to view at wolverhampton.gov.uk/school-open-days
Parents are advised to carefully consider each school’s admissions criteria and use all five preferences on their application.
There is a strict deadline of 31 October for applications, this is a national deadline and applications made after this are considered once all on-time applications have been determined.
Brenda Wile, Deputy Director of Education, said: “September will see many children across the City of Wolverhampton head into their final year of primary school. If this is your child, now is the time to start thinking about their secondary school place for next year.”
“Ensuring applications are made by the end of October can increase the chances of securing a place at a preferred school. This is one of the most important decisions you can make for your child, so please don’t miss the deadline.”
