Admission Arrangements

Stoke-on-Trent City Council ensures that all children living within a catchment area can be offered a place at a school near to their home.

However, parents can express a preference for a school which is not necessarily local to them. If the preferred school is below its admission limit for the relevant age group, then a place will be offered.

Where schools are oversubscribed the priorities for admission are on the following basis:

  • Pupils living within the school's catchment area
  • Pupils with brothers or sisters in the school
  • Pupils for whom personal/domestic circumstances presented by parents justify, in the Authority's view, admission to a particular school
  • Pupils living nearest to the school
