If your child already attends another school and you wish to apply for a place at Hugo Meynell Primary School for them, perhaps if you are moving to the area, you will need to complete an 'In-Year Application form'. This can be found below. Once we have received your application, we will advise you of the outcome within 10 school days.


Please contact the school office for more information and up to date availability.

If we are unable to offer your child a place at Hugo Meynell, we will write to you with the reasons for this decision. You will have the right to appeal and full details of how to do this will be contained in the letter that we send you.

Admission to Hugo Meynell Nursery

The school also offers a Governor run Nursery which is available to children from their third birthday.


Admissions to Nursery are managed by the school and not Staffordshire County Council. Please contact the school office for further details or to register your child.
