Transfer to Upper School 2018

The closing date for applications was 31 October 2017.

You can still download and complete the 2017 school place application form (PDF 301.6KB) to apply, but this will be classed as a late application. Find out more about late applications.

Make sure your application reaches us by the national closing date!

All applications we receive after the national closing date 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.

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

Living in the catchment area may give your child priority however it does not automatically guarantee a place at your local school.

Be realistic about the schools you are applying for.

If you have an older child at a school, but do not live within the school's catchment area, it's possible your younger child may not be offered a place at the same school.

You will find out where your child has been offered a school place on 1 March 2018 (national secondary offer day).

If a place cannot be offered at your preferred school(s), the council will offer a place at a suitable school in the local area.
