Transfer to Secondary School 2018
The closing date for applications is 31 October 2017. Applications received from 1 November are deemed late. Late applications must be made on a paper application form.
Make sure your application reaches us by the national closing date!
All applications we receive after the national closing date will be classed as late and not processed until the late allocation round, which will take place after the national offer day for on time applications.
Late applications are not dealt with until after all the on time applications have been considered. Places are not reserved at schools in the on time allocation for late catchment children or any other circumstances.
Submitting a late application significantly reduces your child’s chance of an offer of a place at one of your preferred schools.
Living in the catchment area may give your child priority however it does not automatically guarantee a place at your local school.
Be realistic about the schools you are applying for.
If you have an older child at a school, but do not live within the school's catchment area, it's possible your younger child may not be offered a place at the same school.
You will find out where your child has been offered a school place on 1 March 2018 (national secondary offer day).
If a place cannot be offered at your preferred school(s), we will offer a place at a suitable school in the local area.
