St. Mary's Bluecoat CE Primary School

"Working together for success"


Applications to School

As an Aided School, we are responsible for our own admission arrangements but in order to help everyone we follow the same timescale as the rest of Shropshire LA maintained schools for Reception class intake.  The admissions processes are co-ordinated by Shropshire Council, which is the Local Authority (LA) and we liaise closely with Shropshire Council on all admissions issues. 


Parents who are interested in sending their child to St. Mary’s Bluecoat CE Primary School are welcome to arrange an initial visit to the school via the school administrator.


Mid-term Transfers


From 1 September 2024. Shropshire Council will be coordinating and allocating all requests for places at our school.


We welcome prospective parents to visit our school. If your child currently attends another primary school and you are considering applying for a place at St. Mary’s Bluecoat then please telephone the school administrator who will be able to arrange for you and your child to visit. Often children join our school mid-term due to a house move or a change in family circumstances, but we also know that on occasion, parents will consider school moves for other reasons. We can also offer taster days in advance of a place being accepted.


If you wish to apply for a place at our school, please complete the online application form via this link – Synergy - Homepage (


Your application will be processed by the School Admissions Team at Shropshire Council in accordance with our school’s published oversubscription criteria. You will then be notified via letter of the outcome of your application.
