Key announcements

Our council tax and benefits online systems and forms may be unavailable on Saturday 21 May between 8am and 2pm due to planned maintenance. Details of how to offer support to Ukraine residents fleeing war, and where to find information and advice are on our City of Sanctuary webpage

Waiting lists

If you do not receive an offer of a place at your higher preference schools your child’s name will automatically be placed on the waiting lists for those schools.

Please note that waiting lists are compiled in the same order as the oversubscription criteria, e.g. siblings first, etc.

Late applicants are also added according to this order, so your child’s name could move down as well as up a waiting list. Having a place on the waiting list is no guarantee that a place will become available.

Information on waiting list positions will not be available until Monday 21 March 2022

From Monday 21 March 2022, you can contact Children’s Services on 0121 303 1888 who will let you know who holds the waiting list for the school you want (either School Admissions or the school itself).

Waiting list advice will not be available before this to allow time for offers to be accepted and refused.

The Admissions team will contact you if a school place becomes available for your child from a waiting list.

For Schools outside of Birmingham please check that local authority’s website for information about waiting lists.
