Information is also available about applying for September 2015 year 10 places at Inspire Enterprise Academy and South Wiltshire UTC.

Online Admissions

Online applications are made using the Online Admissions system. A link to the system is in the box at the top right of this page.

The online system is open from 8 September 2014. The deadlines for applications are as follows:

  • Reception (primary or infant) and junior school places - 23:59 on 15 January 2015.

  • Secondary school places - 23:59 on 31 October 2014.

You will not be able to apply online after that time.

To apply after the deadline, please contact the Admissions team for a paper application form. Any such application will be regarded as late, and will be processed after all on-time applications.

Applications to other school admission authorities

The Admissions team will send details of any applications for schools for which Southampton City Council is not the admissions authority (such as the schools listed on our other school admissions policies page, or schools maintained by Hampshire County Council) to the relevant admission authority to be processed.

The results will be returned to the Admissions team at Southampton City Council.
