School place planning in South Staffordshire District

The South Staffordshire district is made up of four distinct areas:

A two-tier education system, with primary (4-11 years) and secondary (11-18 years) schools, operates in Cheslyn Hay, Great Wyrley, Kinver and Wombourne

In Codsall, Perton and Penkridge, a three-tier system with first (4-9 years), middle (9-13 years) and high (13-18 years) schools, operates.

For the purpose of school place planning the district is broken down into smaller planning areas which are used to plan the number of school places required. These have been grouped based on the geographical location of schools, and by assessing pupil movement between schools and catchment areas.
