Apply for a school place or change an existing school place

Online applications for a school place starting in September 2016 have now closed. If you have missed the deadline, please contact the Admissions team to submit a late application.

If you have already applied online, you can Review your school place application

You cannot apply online after the closing date or for school places needed before September. If you are not happy with your child's current school you can request an in year transfer.

If your child has a Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan, you will need to contact the Special Needs Team on 023 8083 3270.

If you only intend to apply to an independent or private school, please advise the Admissions team in writing.

What happens next?

School place offers will be sent by post and email on:

  • Secondary school places - 1 March 2016
  • Infant, primary and junior school places - 18 April 2016

You can also view the offer by logging back into the Citizen Portal.
