After you get your school offer

5. Request a change of allocated school for September 2023

If your preferred school(s) are full for entry in September 2023, we can look into changing your child’s allocated school provided the alternative school did not turn down any on-time applications. It is not possible to express a new preference for a school not listed on your application until 1 September 2023.

If your change of allocation can be met your original allocation will be withdrawn.

The following schools are open for change of allocation requests:

Hailsham Community College Academy Trust

King's Academy Ringmer

Rye College

Seahaven Academy

The Eastbourne Academy

The Hastings Academy

The St Leonards Academy

The Turing School

Please put your request in an email to and include:

  • your child’s name and date of birth
  • the school you wish to be considered.
  • the reasons you wish to change your child’s allocated school (ie sibling)

The decisions on these requests do not carry a right of appeal nor can you join a waiting list. This service is not available for In year applications.
