Admission Arrangements

Applying for Your Child’s Primary School Place 

If your child lives in Dudley, you need to apply to Dudley Council for a primary school place. Even if you have already approached a school, or have put your child’s name down at a school, you still need to make an application.

Attendance at a particular nursery gives no priority for a place at primary school.

Places at Thorns Primary are allocated by the Dudley Admissions Service using the Dudley schools admissions criteria. For further information please see the link below.

Information about primary school admissions can be found at the following link:
