Pupils primarily join the school at the start of an academic year, however, entry at other points is possible if a place is available. When joining during an academic year, particular care is taken to ensure that the pupil quickly settles, making new friends and getting to know the School and teachers.

In Pre-School, children attend at least five sessions each week. This provides the opportunity for a structured and stable environment on which to build a solid foundation for academic success.

Admission is by assessment, interview and school report. Although Lichfield Cathedral School is not academically selective, academic assessments are completed (usually during taster days) to ensure that:

  • the Head Teacher considers the school capable of supporting the applicant so that he/she will thrive in this environment; and
  • the School is able to provide the specific support required by children with special educational needs.

The School expects that students joining at Sixth Form level will have attained five or more GCSEs at grades 9-6. In addition, some A Level subjects require the achievement of specific grades at GCSE level. Detailed information can be found in the Sixth Form prospectus.

If all places are filled, a place is offered on the waiting list. When a place becomes available, priority is given to parents on the waiting list who already have a child in the School; otherwise, places are offered in the chronological order of application.
