Most of Shirley Heath's pupils transfer from Woodlands and Blossomfield Infant Schools but a minority of children come from other Infant Schools. Two Open Days and one Open Evening are held in October and November for prospective parents to visit the school. If these dates are not convenient, an alternative appointment may be made with the Headteacher.
Each year Solihull Local Authority publishes a primary and secondary booklet containing details of the admission arrangements for Solihull schools. Copies of either booklet are available from the School Admissions Team on 0121 704 6693 or on the Local Authority website at http://www.solihull.gov.uk/Resident/Schools-learning/schooladmissions/admissionsjunior
