Admissions

Our schools are very popular both with parents in the catchment area and beyond.

If you wish to make an enquiry about places please read the update section of the page below to see the current situation in individual schools and year groups across the trust.

As an academy trust we are our own admissions authority. We do, however, still work very closely with Staffordshire County Council admissions team. Please feel free to download and read our Admissions & Appeals Arrangements policy.
