Mid-Term Transfer

If you are wishing to transfer your child from another School, you will need to complete a mid-term transfer form and return it to the School Office to be processed. If you are successful in gaining a place, you will be contacted by the Administrator to complete admission forms and discuss further details before the transfer. If you are unsuccessful in gaining a place (for example; if we are over-subscribed) you may follow our 'appeals process' and your application will be considered by the Governing Body.

For more information on all Shropshire Schools, please refer to the 'Parents' guide to education' available here (Parent's guide to education | Shropshire Council)
