Applying for a school place in-year

An in-year admission is when a child needs an immediate school place during the school year.  There are two main reasons for this. You might be moving house or you may be unhappy with your child’s current school.  Click here to find out more and to apply online.


Applying for a place on medical or social grounds

You can request priority for a place at your preferred school if your child, or a family member living at the same address, has an exceptional medical and/or social need that makes attendance at a particular school essential.  Click here to find out more.



Any parent or carer who has been refused a school place for their child has the right to appeal the decision.  Click here to find out more.
