Admissions for children aged 4 to 11 years (for all other classes) is managed by Leicester City Council.

Once your child has been allocated a place at Shenton, you will receive a letter. The school will also receive a letter. Once you have received this, please contact us as soon as possible. We will be able to give you a school prospectus if you have not already received one, and explain routines and timetables to you. We will also agree a start date for your child.



Detailed information can be found on the city website.


The parents of Year 6 children receive a letter from the authority in September stating which school has been selected for their child. The letter contains information as to the procedure for changing the LEA’s selection. If you need any advice please talk to your child’s class teacher.


Year 6 children have several opportunities during the year to visit the two main Secondary Schools close to our school, which are Crown Hills and Moat Community College. Information is sometimes received from other secondary schools about open days, which we will also inform parents about.


If you need any help with completing the forms or have any questions please contact us.
