After you get your school offer


5. Request a change of allocated school for September 2022

If your preferred school(s) are full for entry in September 2022, 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 2022.

If your change of allocation can be met your original allocation will be withdrawn.
