Application for Secondary School
The Secondary 2021 round opened on 12th September 2020 and the closing date is the 31.10.2020. You will need to go to walsall.gov.uk – education – school admissions – secondary admissions and make your application there. The portal is open between 8am and 9.30pm, if you try before this you will not be able to get on. Passwords have to include one capital letter, ten or more lower case letters, one or two numbers and then a symbol i.e. %/$/£. Please do not use the hashtag symbol.
There is a secondary booklet available on line which will also assist you. The new booklet has details of how to contact schools regarding open evenings. Most schools will refer you to their websites for further advice. I would advise you to read this regarding offers made in the last two years for schools.
The closing date is 31.10.2020 and will not change.
You apply to the local authority that you live in and you can also add other Local Authority schools to your Walsall application totalling 5 preferences. It is not a first come first served basis providing you get your application in by the closing date.
I would advise you not to put just one preference and use up to the five preferences allowed.
