Admissions to Year 7

‘A wealth of opportunities to enjoy learning and be successful.’

Ounsdale High School is based in Wombourne in South Staffordshire but welcomes applications from students outside of its catchment area, particularly those living in Dudley and Wolverhampton. Transport is available from these areas.

In 2017 the children of all parents who put Ounsdale as their first choice were allocated a place.

Admissions for September 2018 are being dealt with via the Staffordshire School Admissions Service and details of how to apply for a place can be found on their website:

For parents who reside in the Dudley area applications can be made online

Parents living outside Staffordshire should apply through the admissions service of their own local authority.

Parents who wish to enquire about a place at other times during the year should contact the school directly.

Choosing the right secondary school is one of the most important decisions that you will make for your child and I hope that you will visit Ounsdale High School to see the exceptional opportunities we offer. If you would like to arrange a visit to the school please contact reception on 01902 504930 to arrange a date. 

Further Information from Staffordshire School Admissions Service for September 2018

The application process will open on 04 September 2017.

Staffordshire Local Authority are no longer providing any paper copies of the Information to Parents Booklet.  Schools and Parents can view or download a copy of the booklet from their website.

Parents will receive information on how to apply from their home local authority.  We are not providing application forms to parents as we would prefer to receive online applications.  If parents want to complete a paper form they are available for download from their website or by calling 0300 111 8007.  A copy of the timetable for the co-ordinated admissions process is attached for your information.

The maximum admissions limit for this year will be 192. As there are fewer children in the primary schools in the catchment area than this, there are more places available for parents applying from outside.
