Due to the current COVID-19 situation, all members of the School Admissions Team are currently working remotely. Whilst we are working to try and continue providing a good level of service, some of our processes have been affected and others are taking longer to complete.
Deciding which secondary school to choose is one of the most important decisions carers/parents and young people have to make. We want to make sure that the move from primary to secondary is as smooth as possible.
We aim to make sure that you have the best chance of securing a place at the school you want. Many schools, however, receive more applications than there are places available. All schools must have admissions criteria set out within their admissions policies to help determine how the available places are allocated. These arrangements must be fair and unbiased and follow the requirements of the Government's School Admissions Code.
Coventry City does not have any Grammar schools in its area. To apply for a Grammar school, you will need to include the school within your Coventry application in order for them to be considered. However, you must ensure that you have already registered to sit the 11+ test with the Local Authority in which the Grammar school is situated. Coventry School Admissions do not administer the 11+ test.
It is important to have all of the information available to enable you, with your child, to make an informed decision about the school you would prefer them to attend.
