We provide free schools for all children across Birmingham:
- Nursery schools accept 3 and 4 year olds
- Primary schools are for 4 to 11 year olds
- Secondary schools (year 7) for 11 to 18 year olds
- Year 12 applications are not co-ordinated by Birmingham City Council. You should apply directly to the school.
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.
