Welcome to the Shropshire Council, School Admissions, Online Portal

Who can apply using the Shropshire Online Portal?

Shropshire local authority residents (or applicants from either overseas, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland) must use this portal to make an online application for school places in 2021. It will also be available to view the outcome of the application on national offer day.

  • Applications for a place at any English state school must be made to your 'home authority', the local authority in which you live.
  • Please note: Telford local authority residents must apply to Telford and Wrekin Council.
  • If an application is made through this portal from a resident in another English authority other than Shropshire it will be discarded.

This online application facility is for :

  • Year 6 pupils who transfer to secondary school in September 2021, and available from 7 September 2020 until the closing date of 31 October 2020.

  • Year 2 pupils who transfer to junior school in September 2021, and available from 7 September 2020 until the closing date of 15 January 2021.

  • Pupils starting school in the 2021/22 academic year, and available from 5 October 2020 until the closing date of 15 January 2021.

Please be advised that the online facility will not be available after the appropriate closing date. Therefore, unless there are exceptional reasons why an application is received after the closing date it will be classed as late. This may mean your application is not processed with all the on time applications and your child may miss out on a school place at your preferred school.

National Offer Days

The day the results of your application are released is a national day meaning that the results of all applications made in England are known on the same day. These dates are:

  • 1 March 2021 for secondary school applications
  • 16 April 2021 for primary and junior applications

To use this site you will need to first register. An email will be sent to you - please follow the link to activate your account (please check spam box). You will be able to make your application for admission to school and then amend and view it up to the closing date. Once you have submitted your application, an email of confirmation will be sent to you. Please note this confirmation, and an email notification of the allocated place on national offer day, will contain personal information about your child. If you do not want to receive this unencrypted information electronically, please contact the Admissions Team.

This facility is not available if you want to apply for Shropshire state funded schools for a year group not stated above. Please complete the mid-term (inyear) application and send it directly to your preferred schools.
