If you apply for a place at the school and the school is oversubscribed (has more applicants than there are places available) your application is given criteria. Places are then offered in criteria order to fill the school. The school follows the Warwickshire County Council over subscription criteria:


Warwickshire County Council’s (WCC) oversubscription criteria

Children with a Statement of Special Needs (now referred to as an Education and Health Care Plan) are admitted first and this will reduce the number of places available for other applicants. After statemented pupils, the following criteria apply:

  1. Children living inside the priority area who will have a brother or sister at the school at the time of admission. (The Nethersole C of E Academy priority area can be located at )


  1. Other children living inside the priority area.

All children within our 'normal area' (previously referred to as 'catchment area') also fall within Polesworth High's normal area and therefore are a priority group for admission to the secondary school.


Children outside of our 'normal area' may fall within a priority group for admission for the high school. For further information on how this is defined by the high school and their 'normal area' please see the following link:
