For children attending infant schools, an application needs to be made for their Year 3 place at a junior school.

Some parents with a child in Year 2 at an infant school may wish to apply for a Year 3 place in a primary school. In addition to applying for a junior school place, you will need to make an in-year application for the preferred primary school.

For main round applications, the school place offered will be for a full time place starting from 1 September 2024. Find out more about how to apply for a school place.

2024/25 admissions

You can now read information on the process for 'main round' admission into Year 3 for the 2024/25 academic year at Coordinated Scheme for Entry Into Year 3 at Junior Schools (2024/25).

Linked infant and junior schools

Many infant and junior schools are linked and work collaboratively. While a place at a linked junior school is not guaranteed, it is a priority used in the admissions policies when allocating places due to oversubscription.


Applications for September 2024 are now closed
