These applications are for the normal round of school entries in September. This includes those starting school for the first time in Year R, moving to junior school in Year 3 or moving to secondary school in Year 7 for the next academic year.
Once you have an idea of the school you would like your child to attend, you can apply online for a school place. If you pay your Council Tax to Southampton City Council then you must apply for schools through us, even those not in Southampton. If you’ve missed the deadline then you can also make a late application. We also have some useful help and guidance around making, submitting and changing an online school place application.
If you are moving house before the application deadline, you must amend your online application or submit a new paper application form – see ‘moving house’ below.
Some applications will also require supporting information. These include those applying for a faith school under the faith criteria, applying for a school for a significant medical or psychological reason or applying as an active member of the Church of England who require a Church of England controlled school. Find out more below under ‘supporting evidence’.
