Applying for a Secondary School Place in September 2022

 

What you need to do now

  1. Visit www.warwickshire.gov.uk/admissions and create a parent portal account with the details of your child. If you already have a parent portal account with us, please check your contact information is up-to-date and add the details of your child who will start secondary school next year. This will ensure that you are ready to complete your child’s application when the process opens on Monday 6 September 2021 and allows us to send you any updates in the meantime.
  2. If you would like your child to be considered for a grammar school place in 2022, then please register your child to sit the 11+ test - which you can do from Monday 10 May 2021. The deadline to register as an ‘on-time’ candidate is Wednesday 30 June 2021 and this should also be done through the parent portal.

Start thinking about your preferred school(s). Every school has its own admission criteria that will be used when allocating places, so we recommend that you read the 2022 entry admission arrangements for each. These are usually found on each school’s website or can be requested from the school itself.

 

What happens next?

The formal application process for a secondary school place begins on Monday 6 September 2021. We will contact you again at that point, with further information about the application process, the details of any priority area school(s) that your home address falls in, and information about our school transport policy and options. The deadline to submit your application is 31 October 2021.

The 11+ tests are scheduled to be held in September 2021 for those children who register by the deadline of 30 June 2021. Warwickshire operates a shared test with the grammar schools in Birmingham, so if you are interested in applying for either Warwickshire or Birmingham grammar schools, then please register on the parent portal and look out for the updates on the testing dates and venues which will follow. Please note that registering for the 11+ test is not an application for secondary school, and you will also need to apply for a school place in the usual way. Further information on the 11+ is available at www.warwickshire.gov.uk/grammar-schools-11-test

If you have any questions or concerns about the application process, please visit www.warwickshire.gov.uk/admissions where you will find more detailed information about the application process and key dates.
