Mid Year Transfer if you wish your child / children to join us during the school year then you can download the required CA1 application form from www.worcestershire.gov.uk/schooladmissions.
Parents of children resident outside of Worcestershire
If you wish to apply for a place at any Worcestershire school, you must complete an application provided by your “home” LA. (The “home” LA is defined as the Local Authority relevant to the child’s home address). The “home” LA will ensure that the application details are passed onto Worcestershire LA for consideration in the allocation of school places. If you are not resident in Worcestershire, then you should obtain admission details from your home LA, even if your preferences include schools within Worcestershire.
The current Admissions and Transfers to Schools Information for Parents Book and the Starting School parental guide, Transfer to Middle School and Transfer to Secondary School parental guides will be available on the website www.worcestershire.gov.uk/schooladmissions
