Waiting lists

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

Waiting lists are compiled in the same order as the school’s oversubscription criteria, for example 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 25 March 2024.

From Monday 25 March 2024, 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.
