Grestone Academy

Admissions Policy

Grestone Academy is a 3 -11 years Primary Academy and is part of the Hamstead Hall Academy Trust.
The maximum number on roll is 630 and there are 90 places per year group available from Reception to Year 6. Nursery can accommodate approximately 52 part time pupils.

Reception Applications

Applications for places in Reception for September 2018 should be made to Birmingham City Council Admissions and Pupil Placements. This can be done online at . Application forms are also available from the school but these must be returned to Birmingham City Council.

Other Applications

Applications for school places for other year groups (including Nursery) or Reception mid-year should be made directly to the Academy. Please call in to collect an application form.


When there are more applications than places available at the school the following criteria will be used to determine which children will be allocated places:
1. Looked After Children (in public care).
2. Children with a brother or sister already at the academy who will still be in attendance in September 2018.
3. Children who live nearest to the academy.
Within each of these categories, priority is given to those who live nearest to the academy, calculated on the basis of a straight-line measurement between home and the academy.
