In-Year Admissions (Changing Schools)

In-year admissions relate to school places other than the main point of entry, usually if your child is changing schools. If you wish to apply for an in-year school place and you live within the Dudley Local Authority, you must contact Dudley Admissions Service and complete the necessary paperwork. Your child's current school will also have to complete and return a section of the paperwork. You may have to go on a waiting list if there are no places available in the year group you require.
