In-year admissions during the school year


In year admissions

You can now apply for entry for September 2017 for in-year transfers. Applications for children to transfer between schools for the remainder of the current school year have been suspended.

Please note: for children who will transfer in September 2018 from Infant to Junior School or Primary to Secondary, or those who will be starting school for the first time – the application window will be open in mid September 2017.     


You can ask to change schools at any time.

After you have found the right school for your child, please apply. We aim to process requests within 15 school days.

If there are places available, your child will be offered a place.

If the school does not have a place you have a right to appeal.

Moving house

We will only use a new address for the purpose of allocating a school place when either

  • contracts have been exchanged
  • when a tenancy agreement has been signed.

Without this evidence, we will process your application based on your existing address. We may also ask for additional evidence to confirm a move has taken place, for example

  • a copy of a council tax or utility bill for your new address
  • evidence that you will not be returning to your previous address.
