Somerset County Council co-ordinates admissions for children starting school for the first time or starting secondary school.

The Governors’ Admissions Committee meets weekly to consider in-year admission applications. Decisions are notified to the applicant within ten school days of receipt of the application form. Waiting lists are operated for all year groups. Where a child is formally refused admission, parents/carers may request that their child is place on the appropriate waiting list.

The Castle School Secondary School

Court Fields Secondary School

Wellesley Park Primary School
