Marlborough Primary School


Admissions to Marlborough Primary School are controlled by Birmingham Local Authority. If you would like to apply for a place at our school use the Birmingham Admissions and Appeals office. Information can be obtained from their website.



There is an admissions policy outlining in detail how to apply for a place and this is in line with the Local Authority guidelines and can be found in the policies section on our school website.


The school can admit 30 children in any class.


Places are allocated according to the authority published criteria.


The criteria are as follows:


1. Looked after children and any child with a statement of Special Educational Needs.


2. Children with brothers or sisters already at school who will still be at Marlborough Primary School when they start school themselves.


3. Children who live nearest to the school by straight line measurement.


The arrangements for children who transfer from another school to Marlborough Primary School are as follows:


1. Once the decision to transfer to Marlborough Primary School has been made, a start date for your child(ren) will be established. Details of previous school will be taken so that records can be passed on.


2. To assist with your son’s/daughter’s transfer, parents and children will have the opportunity to view the school at work and meet the Head Teacher. 


We are an oversubscribed school and are  full in all year groups except reception. If you have a child or know of a child whose date of birth is between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015, and they don't currently attend a school, they could qualify for a place at Marlborough Primary School. Please contact the school office for an application.  If the year group is full, you will be placed on a waiting list and we will inform you when a place becomes available.


If you would like to seek more advice please feel free to come and talk to one of the school admin staff. Alternatively, you may wish to contact the Admissions and Appeals Department at Birmingham City Council - telephone number: 0121 308 1888.


For 2018 Secondary School Places: please follow the link which will direct you to Admissions & Appeals. You will then need to apply online to the school of your choice. The deadline to apply by is 31st October 2017.
