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. It is hoped that the same will be true in 2018 and this will be clarified once the results of this year’s admissions round are published on 1st March 2018.

Admissions for September 2019 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 We have produced a guide for Dudley parents to explain the applications process in more detail. It can be found here.

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