Applying for a place in our Primary School

Parents applying for places in our Primary School must apply through Wolverhampton Local Authority.

You must compete the Authority’s generic application form known as the Common Application Form (CAF) which is available online via the link below. This form requires you to name five primary schools as your preferred choices. The Royal School must be included as one of your five preferences.

You can email us for information and guidance but the CAF must be completed and submitted directly to the Local Authority. They will then pass your application on to us.

Celebration of Well-being and Character Development

Tuesday, 9 to Friday 12 July

The final week of term will be a celebration of well-being through a host of character development activities. The week begins with the senior school sports day on Tuesday, 9 July.

On Wednesday, 10 and Thursday, 11 July, students will take part in a variety of house competitions and activities that will give them an opportunity to enhance a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, problem solving, creativeness and resilience through enterprise, drama and STEM activities to name but a few. During these days, students will also be off site taking part in a number of different activities that encompass our school values such as supporting community projects in the surrounding area and taking to the outdoors for some outdoor and adventurous activities. The school year is brought to a close on Friday, 12 July, with our final house competition. Students will need to use all their skills they have been developing throughout the year and during the week for this end of year extravaganza. We can’t tell you too much about the day as it will spoil the surprise!
