Admissions to Schools Service

There are currently 70 schools in Pembrokeshire serving 9559 full time and 1053 part time primary aged pupils and 7596 secondary age pupils. Pembrokeshire County Council is the admission authority for community and voluntary controlled schools in Pembrokeshire and the Admissions and Planning Places Unit deals with all schools admissions and transfers, except to voluntary aided schools. The admission authority for voluntary aided schools is the governing body of the school concerned.

You can expect:

  • to receive reliable and impartial advice about schools and expressing a preference;
  • to have your application for a school place handled fairly and efficiently;
  • that the offer of a place will be made in good time (subject to your application being received in time);
  • a place in your preferred school, unless there are more applications than the admission number will allow entry. If this occurs, all applications will be assessed against the oversubscription criteria;
  • to be informed of the County Council's policies relating to admissions and school transport;
  • to be informed how to receive a school prospectus and how to arrange a school visit and other relevant information relating to schools in Pembrokeshire;
  • information relating to the right of appeal if you are not allocated a place at your preferred school;
  • an open, fair and effective complaints procedure if you are not satisfied with the services you receive.
