Applying for a Place in Reception

Children in Worcestershire can start school (Reception) in September after their fourth birthday. Worcestershire Council's School Admissions Service publishes information on their website, informing parent/carers on how to start their child at school. However, the responsibility for applying online for a child to start reception class, remains solely with parents/carers and it is important that you apply for a place as soon as the application window opens.

When to apply

Parents can apply for a place in the Autumn of the year before their child turns 4 years of age, however we would welcome a visit from prospective parents and carers at any point. 

Applications for places at St Wulstan's are managed through Worcestershire County Council and their online application process. This can be accessed via the following link:


For all other queries or to arrange a visit, please contact our secretary Mrs Brown via the school office:
