Useful information

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 school travel assistance policy for exact criteria for school travel assistance 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 transport.contracts@telford.gov.uk.
