Looking to join Belvidere School?

The best way judge any school is to ask to be shown round the school during a normal school day. As a prospective parent, you and your child(ren) are welcome to join us for a tour of the school. Please contact the school to arrange an appointment. Most tours last about 30 minutes and you will usually be shown round by our current students.

If you would like to have an informal conversation about your child joining Belvidere School, please feel free to give us a call or email and we will happily answer any questions you may have and take you through the process.

Admissions Arrangements

For 2019/20, the arrangements were determined whilst Belvidere School was still a Shropshire Local Authority Maintained School. Admissions for 2019/20 are therefore being managed under the Shropshire Council Admission Arrangements for 2019/20 which can be found by clicking here.

For 2020/21, The Central Shropshire Academy Trust is the admissions authority, and has determined the following admissions criteria. Please note that the over-subscription criteria for 2020/21 are the same as those determined by Shropshire Council, as the consultation was already underway at the point when the school converted to academy status. Our Admissions arrangements for 2020/21 can be found in our Admissions Policy, linked below.


Admissions to Belvidere School are handled by the Local Authority, more details here...
