Full time places in Reception classes are available in September of the academic year within which the child becomes five years old. Although parents have the right to express a preference for Glascote Academy, there is no guarantee of a place being offered. It is Glascote Academy's policy to try and meet parents' wishes where possible, however in some cases there may be more applications than there are places available.
If you wish to apply for Glascote Academy then school admission information can also be found on the Staffordshire County Council School and Colleges admission site linked below.
