School stages

We provide free schools for all children across Birmingham:

Some of our schools give places to particular children as a priority. For example, children:

  • who belong to a particular faith background
  • of a particular gender (boys for a boys' school) 
  • who have passed an entrance test, in the case of secondary grammar schools.
