How to apply

Apply online for your school place

Applying online is quick, simple and safe. In fact, nearly 95% of parents and carers apply online for a lower/primary school place.

What you'll need to apply

Proof of your child's date of birth, such as a passport or short birth certificate. You'll be prompted to upload a copy of this during your application.

Apply by post

If you can't apply online, don't worry; you can also apply by post. Here's how:

  1. get an application form
    You can download an application form or pick one up from any of our schools
  2. complete the form and ensure you have proof of your child's date of birth, like a passport or short birth certificate (please don't send us original documents; copies are fine)
  3. send the completed form and copies of documents to:
    School Admissions
    Central Bedfordshire Council
    Priory House
    Monks Walk
    SG17 5TQ

We need to receive your application by the 15 January 2024 deadline.

Please don't make both an online and postal application. We'll only process the latest one (if it's sent before the deadline).
