Registration is the first stage of the admissions process, by which parents indicate their interest in a place for their child at Wrekin College. Parents fill in the registration form and pay a non-returnable fee of £100, thus securing a place for their child on the entry list for his/her year of entry. Parents normally visit the school before registration. We advise that children are registered by the end of Year 5 at the latest. Entrance examinations may not be taken unless a child is registered with the school.
