    Admission Procedures    

We are delighted that you are considering St. Peter's School for your child's education. St. Peter's is its own Admissions Authority which means that the governors are responsible for the allocation of places, although Walsall Children's Services do undertake some of the administration side of the the process on our behalf. 

Further information regarding admissions to the school is available below.  Should you require any further assistance, please contact the school office on 01922 710872.


Nursery Admissions 

If you would like your child to be considered for a place in our Nursery, please contact the school office for an application form. You will then need to return it along with your child's birth certificate and baptismal certificate, if they have been baptised Catholic. This will complete the application process. If your application is successful, your child will be allocated a morning Nursery place to begin the term following their third birthday and you will receive a letter confirming this information.

We have three intakes throughout the academic year – September, January and April, which enables you the opportunity to enrol your child as soon as they reach the age of three.


Nursery funding

All children are entitled to 15 hours free nursery education, which will take place within the morning. Our Nursery also offers 30 hours funded education for parents/carers who are eligible. For more information regarding eligibility for 30 hours please click the link below:

Reception Admissions

Within Walsall, children are admitted to a Reception class on a full time basis from the September following their fourth birthday.  Applications must be made online to Walsall Children's Services.  When making your application, please ensure that you complete a Supplementary Information Form and return this directly to us at school - download a copy of form below. You can also obtain one from Walsall Children Services. Please note that if your child is baptised Catholic, you must attach a copy of their baptismal certificate in order for the correct priority to be given to your application.

Mid-Year Admissions

If you wish to apply for your child to join St. Peter's at any time other than at the normal Reception admissions round, you will need to contact Walsall Admissions via their website.
