Our admissions process is part of the Local Authority co-ordinated scheme. For more information, see the Birmingham City Council School Admissions web page.

The school’s admission number is 90. Where the number of applications is lower than the school’s admission number, all applicants will be admitted.

If there are more applications than places available, then all applications will be considered, together and at one time, by a committee of the Governing Body. The places will be allocated following the oversubscription criteria detailed in the relevant year’s admissions policy which can be found below:
