Applications for September 2020

If your child was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 he or she is due to transfer to a secondary school in September 2020.

Walsall participates in an Inter-Local Authority (LA) Co-ordinated Admission Scheme along with a number of local authorities in the Midlands, including: Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Staffordshire and Wolverhampton.

The scheme allows you to express preferences for up to five secondary schools, rank them in order of preference and give reasons for your preferences, if appropriate (e.g. medical or social). The Walsall on-line application portal allows you to apply for a place at any secondary school in or outside the borough, with some exceptions.

  • If you live in Walsall, please complete your on-line application by 31 October 2019.
  • If you live in Walsall and your child attends a primary school outside Walsall, or a private school in Walsall, please complete your on-line application by 31 October 2019.
  • If you live outside Walsall, you should submit an application through your home local authority listing all of your preferred schools.

The national offer date for secondary school admissions is 1 March (or the next available working day). 1 March 2020 falls on a Sunday therefore offers will be published on the next working day which is 2 March 2020.

Parents who submit an online application for a secondary school place and request an email notification will receive details of the outcome of their child’s application by email on Monday 2 March 2020. The emails will be produced and sent out by an automated process over the course of the day on Monday 2 March 2020.

Parents will also receive notification of the outcome of their application by a letter posted second class on Monday 2 March 2020.
