Online applications are now the preferred method of making a preference for schools at the normal age of entry. Last year, over 80% of applications for High school places were made online. Parents who apply online are able to receive email notification of their school place on the national offer day, rather than through the post.
Applications for Secondary School places can be made online through the following page on the Staffordshire Web up until 31 October 2013. Applications for Primary and Middle school places will be open from 1 November 2013 until 15 January 2014.
