Church Stretton School has a Published Admission Number (PAN) of 96 for each Year 7 intake.  We are a popular school and we find that students settle in quickly, forging new friendships and enjoying their learning. 

Please have a look at our prospectus and our upcoming open days. Once your child has been accepted, we make every effort to make their transition to secondary school as smooth and as enjoyable as possible. We run a summer school that lets students get to know each other, the school and the teachers before term starts in September. 

You can read our School's Admissions Policy within the Policy section of our website.
