Visit Rhondda Council for State Primary School admission information for pupils starting at either:

  • A Primary or First school at the beginning of the reception year
  • A Junior school at the beginning of Year 3

Or Secondary State School admissions for pupils starting at either:

  • a Secondary school at the beginning of Year 7
  • an Upper school at the beginning of Year 9

State school admissions in England are regulated by the Schools Admissions Code, and schools must play fair, ensuring their admissions policy is not only fair but also transparent. Parents must play fair too: schools and local authorities are wising up on parental attempts to circumvent the code, and hundreds of school places are withdrawn every year, sometimes after the child has started school. read more

The Good Schools Guide Education Consultants now offers a specific service for parents who want advice on state school places: visit State School Service.
