Admissions & Transfers
Increasingly, our school caters for pupils outside the school's traditional 'catchment area', with many families choosing to travel in order to attend Clifton.
As a Community School, our admissions for children starting school in Reception are processed and governed by Worcestershire County Council.
Applications to attend Clifton upon Teme Primary can be made for pupils living within and outside Worcestershire, but must be made through the Local Authority where the family lives. Please check the relevent application process for your local authority
Please note: the usual deadline to make an application for a Reception pupil to start school in September is the middle of the previous January (usually on or around 15th)
Details of transfer/in-year admissions can also be found on the Worcestershire Council website, and a transfer form can be downloaded here .
The school’s annual intake in the Reception Year is 15, giving an overall school capacity of 105 (7 year groups of 15). All Reception children are admitted to school in September. In consultation with the teacher, where appropriate, summer-born children may attend on a part time basis initially.
We encourage all prospective parents and pupils to visit us, to get a feel for what we offer at Clifton. A website can only give you a taster!
Many pupils, on completing their primary education with us, transfer to The Chantry School at the beginning of the Autumn term following their eleventh birthday. Other transfer schools include Tenbury High School, Christopher Whitehead High School, or private sector schools in Worcester.
