In year applications for September 2019 (moving schools)

If you are applying for a school place for September 2019 you will be able to apply from 22 June 2019.

We aim to respond to your request for a change of school place within 15 school working days. However, the school term ends on 19 July 2019 and we are unable to process applications during school holidays as the schools will be closed.

We will aim to process any requests received after the 19 July 2019 within 15 school working days from the 3 September 2019. However, due to the high volumes of applications expected this may take slightly longer.

Before placing an in year application please read through our guidance notes for parents and refer to the 'Application process' page for further guidance.

After submitting your application we will contact your preferred schools to find out if there is a place. We will send you the outcome of your application. We aim to give you an outcome within 15 school working days.

If you are offered a place you should contact the school to accept the place and arrange a start date. Your child will be expected to start within six school weeks. You should email us if you do not want to accept the place. It is still your responsibility for your child to continue to attend the school they currently attend until a new school has been identified.
