Applying to the School

The Senior Leaders and the Local Governing Committee at Woodcroft Academy are committed to developing an inclusive school that reflects the diversity of the local community. Admission to the School is not dependent on being a member of a particular faith community.  


All applications are considered against published criteria with no priority awarded for early applications. 

The School Admissions Team allocates all school Reception class places.  They will not be issuing application forms as the Service is keen to provide a paperless system in all its admissions processes wherever possible.  For further details of how to apply for a place at our school please follow the link to Staffordshire County Council Admissions. 


This also gives details if you wish to apply for a mid-year transfer but we would request that you contact the school beforehand.
