Transfer to Secondary School 2018

How to apply

The closing date for applications was 31 October 2017.

You can still download and complete the 2018 school place application form (PDF 301.6KB) to apply, but this will be classed as a late application. Find out more about late applications.

Our information booklet Admissions in Central Bedfordshire 2018 (PDF 1.3MB) explains the process, key dates and information about how to make your application.

Our directory of schools contains:

  • admission criteria
  • designated measuring point
  • number of children on roll
  • places requested and allocated

All applications received by the School Admissions Team after the national closing date (31 October 2017) will be classed as late and not processed until the late allocation round. Late applications are not dealt with until after all the on time applications have been considered. Find out more about late applications.

If you live outside Central Bedfordshire

If you live outside Central Bedfordshire and wish to apply for a place at a Central Bedfordshire school, you must apply to your own local authority. Even if your local authority accepts more than three preferences, please note that we only accept a maximum of three schools.
