Admissions

Old Park Primary School is a Foundation school due to our Trust status. However, the governing body have opted for Sandwell Council to be our admissions authority.  Therefore, we follow their policies and procedures.

Application Procedure for September 2018

If you wish to apply for a Reception place at Old Park Primary School, or are applying for a Secondary School place for September 2018 you will need to apply via the Local Authority you pay your Council Tax to.  For example: Old Park is a Sandwell school, but a parent who lives in the Walsall Council area can still apply to Old Park via Walsall Council. The authorities take all applications then co-ordinate them together.
