The policy for admissions to Lacon Childe school is determined by the Shropshire Gateway Educational Trust. Shropshire Council’s Admissions Team operates the admissions process for admission to year 7 and all enquiries regarding Admissions should be addressed to them.

Shropshire Council produce a booklet “Parents’ Guide to Education in Shropshire” each year with up to date information about schools and a full explanation of the admissions processes. The booklets are available in school or libraries and can be accessed on the Shropshire website.


Parents/Carers of Year 6 children and resident in Shropshire will be required in the Autumn Term prior to the school year of transfer to complete a Shropshire application which 3 preferences can be stated. Applications can be made online through the Shropshire website.

All applications must be made by 31st October in the academic year prior to which your child is due to start school.

The school admission policies can be viewed using the links below.

Following determination of arrangements, any objections to admission arrangements for entry in September 2023, must be made to the Schools Adjudicator by 15 May 2022.
