Apply for an secondary school place in Central Bedfordshire
When to apply for secondary school for 2023
You need to apply before 31 October 2022, even if your child already attends a feeder school and you live in the catchment area.
How to apply
- if we're you're council, you need to apply through us
- if we're not your council, you'll need to apply through them (find out who your council is on GOV.UK)
Applying online is quick, simple and safe. In fact, over 95% of parents and carers apply online for a secondary school place.
If your child isn't in their normal year group
Please apply by post (instructions below). Unfortunately, you can't use the online application, as it won't recognise your child's date of birth.
Apply by post
If you can't apply online, don't worry; you can also apply by post. Here's how:
- get an application form
You can download an application form, pick one up from any of our schools or we can post one to you (just call us on 0300 300 8037 and ask)
- complete the form
- send the completed form to:
Central Bedfordshire Council
We need to receive your application by the 31 October 2022 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).
