From mid September 2022, if your child was born between 1 September 2011 - 31 August 2012 you must apply for a secondary school place for the academic year 2023/2024.
Before you complete your application please download the school admissions mythbuster about school admissions applications.
Applying for school places for academic year 2023/2024
Getting to school
Another important thing that you should consider, before filling in your application form, is how your child will get to and from school. If you are applying for a faith school, the Local Authority no longer provides transport and you will have to make your own arrangements even if you have a child already attending that school. More information can be found by viewing the home to school transport policy for exact criteria for home to school transport eligibility.
We would advise you consider transport arrangement prior to making your school preferences. If you have any queries please contact the transport team before the closing date of the application process by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Grammar school applications
When submitting an application to Telford Wrekin we strongly recommend that if you are adding selective schools to your school application, that you also include non selective schools and use all 4 preferences available. This means that if your child does not pass the assessment for a selective school, you will still have school preferences on your application.
In the event that you do not do this, you may be allocated a school which is either your catchment school or the nearest school with places available.
Please refer to the following schools direct for more up to date information:
- visit Haberdashers' Adam Grammar School website for more information about the grammar school assessment
- visit the Newport Girls' High School website for more information about the grammar school assessment
- visit the Madeley Academy website for more information about their a banding system within their admissions criteria

Thomas Telford School, a City Technology College, is part of the Government's specialist school initiative and the Rules of Admission differ from those of LA schools.
