Applying for a school place during the academic year

If your application is unsuccessful

Your child will be added to the waiting list: for community and VC schools this will be for the academic year, for academies, foundation and voluntary-aided schools, please check the school's admission arrangements or contact the school/academy.

Waiting lists are prioritised according to the oversubscription criteria for the school, not in the date order of when the application was received.

You will have the right to appeal

If you live in Central Bedfordshire and do not currently have a school place in the local area, we will offer a place at the next nearest school with places available.
