Cabinet Member for Education at Worcestershire County Council, Coun Tracey Onslow said:

“Starting or moving to the next step of school is a significant milestone for children, and we want to ensure a seamless and smooth experience throughout this process.

“We are very pleased to be able to say that last year, more than 93 per cent of children received their first choice.

“However, I cannot emphasise enough the importance of meeting the application deadlines to avoid any missed opportunities and ensure a place for your child.”

Applying online is the easiest and most efficient way to apply visit the council’s dedicated School Admissions pages.
