How are places allocated?

How are places allocated?

Staffordshire County Council does not operate a ‘first preference first’ or ‘first come first served basis’.  This means that every school listed on your application will be considered individually and only against the school’s admission arrangements.

If you can be offered a place at more than one of the schools detailed on your application, a place will be allocated at the school ranked highest. If a place cannot be offered at any of your preferred schools, a place will be allocated at an alternative school where places are still available and advised about the independent appeals process.
