Admissions

I want my child to attend Croesyceiliog School when they leave Primary.

How do I apply?

All admissions for our school are managed by the Local Authority, Torfaen County Borough Council. If you attend a Primary School in the borough you will receive information directly about options available to you, and you can apply using the forms provided, or on line at www.torfaen.gov.uk .  You must ensure that TCBC receive your application by the closing date stated on the form, which is normally the end of the second week of December of the previous year. Late applications will be processed but you may find that the school is full and we may be unable to offer you a place.

What if I want my child to transfer during the year?

If you decide to change schools during an academic year you also need to apply through TCBC by requesting the appropriate form or using the online facility by following the link mentioned above, but you are advised to contact us to discuss the matter first.

Can I visit the school to help me decide?

Yes of course. You can ring to arrange a meeting and to have a tour of the school during the day. We recommend this. If your child is in Primary School you can also attend an Open Evening which we hold in generally, in September.

And if my child joins mid year…?

We try to make this as smooth as possible, and we will meet with you to discuss any issues. In Y10/11 especially we need to meet to talk over the curriculum options. It helps us to have all the information from the previous school as quickly as possible too, so we can make the best arrangements for your child. We also pair up children with a “buddy” to make things easier.

How long does the process take?

Starting in Y7 is straightforward. Transfers during the school year can take up to 14 days although we try to reduce this as much as we can, times still vary according to the individual transfer case. Uniform can be sorted very quickly through our supplier, ‘Pretty Miss’, in Cwmbran.
