Apply for a new lower or primary school place

Late applications for lower or primary school

Submitting a late application significantly reduces your child’s chance of an offer of a place at one of your preferred schools.

All applications received after 15 January 2020 will be classed as late and not processed until the late allocation round, which will take place after the national offer day for on-time applications. Late applications are not dealt with until after all the on-time applications have been considered. Places are not reserved at schools in the on-time allocation for late catchment children or any other circumstances.
