Mid Year Admissions


The School Admissions and Appeals Team are currently dealing with a high volume of mid-year admission applications and are working to process all applications and inform customers of the outcome of their application as soon as possible. Thank you for your co-operation.

You may apply for a place at any Walsall school during the school year for your child.

Your child must currently be in the current Reception to Year 11 year groups to make a Mid-Year Admission application.  You can list up to nine preferences on the on-line application and can apply for any Walsall school.

If you would like to make a Mid Year Admission application for a school place in another Local Authority school, you should contact that Local Authority's Admissions Team for details of their Mid-Year Admission Process.

A Mid Year application can be submitted for a child at any point between September 2020 and July 2021.


Grace Academy Darlaston has a Supplementary Information Form here which needs to be completed alongside the application form.


If the child you are applying for has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) and requires a place at a special school, applicants should contact the SEN Team on 01922 652871 rather than submitting an application via this portal.

If the child you are applying for is a Looked After Child (LAC) or in Public Care you should contact the LAC Team on 01922 652816 prior to completing this application.
