PEOPLE living in Tenbury have less than a week to apply for a place next September at a Worcestershire County Council school.

The deadline to apply for a place at a Worcestershire Primary, First, Infant, Junior and Middle school is Tuesday, January 15.

For children born between September 1, 2014 and August 31, 2015, parents must apply for a school place starting in September 2019 before the deadline or they may not receive an offer for one of their preferred schools.

To avoid this unnecessary disappointment and potential inconvenience, parents should log on to

Applying online is the easiest and most efficient way to apply.

It is secure, and parents and carers can log on to the website at any time during the day or night.

This means last minute changes are possible up to 12 midnight on the closing day.

Parents will also gain access to a reference number which they can refer to in any future correspondence.

People who do not have access to the internet can get online at any Worcestershire library or, alternatively, if they require additional assistance should call school admissions on 01905 822700.
