Admissions

Hanley Castle High School is a popular 11-18 Academy. We hold an Open Day and Open Evening at the beginning of October each year for prospective students and their parents/carers, details for which will be posted on the school's website.

Should you wish to meet us and have a tour of the school please contact the Headteacher's PA on 01684 593241 or pa@hanleycastlehs.org.uk

As an academy, Hanley Castle High School is its own admissions authority. The Governors of Hanley Castle High School will be responsible for deciding the outcomes of applications for places in any year group at any time.

Admission into Year 7

All applications for Year 7 places will be co-ordinated by Worcestershire Local Authority (LA), who will make offers of places on behalf of the Governors of the school. Parents or guardians who reside within Worcestershire are required to complete a Worcestershire LA Common Application Form. This can be downloaded or completed online via the link at the bottom of this page.

Parents or guardians who do not reside within Worcestershire, but who wish to apply for a place for their child at Hanley Castle High School must complete an application form for their “home” LA which will ensure that application details are passed to Worcestershire for consideration according to the oversubscription criteria as detailed in our admissions policy.

Waiting list for admissions

A waiting list for places in each year is held by the school. Parents who have been initially unsuccessful in securing a place should contact the school directly to enquire about the waiting list.

Parents whose application for a place at Hanley Castle High School has been unsuccessful have the right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel. Appeals should be made in writing for the attention of the Clerk to the Governors.
