Return to Our School


Please read the Admissions Policy document before applying for a place at Bishop Wood School.

The Local Authority (LA) operates an agreed coordinated admissions scheme in line with government legislation. The LA will manage the process on behalf of the school according to the scheme published each year. The Governing Body, as the Admission Authority, will allocate the available places in line with this policy.

The closing date for admission application forms to be received by the home LA is as advertised by that authority. Information on completing the ‘on line’ application and notification dates of admission decisions are published in the Local Authority Admissions booklet, which is also available from their website.

All applications must be made on the Local Authority common Application Form. For further information see

In addition to the online application Parents/carers are requested to complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) and return it to the school office by the date given. If a SIF is not completed the Governing Body will apply their admission arrangements using the information submitted on the LA Application Form only, which may result in your application being given a lower priority. No SIF is required for admissions in year 2019-2020.
