Transferring your child to another school
Please be aware that in-year applications received after 13 July 2017 can only be processed during September 2017. This may result in some applicants unavoidably missing the first few weeks of the new term.
In-year admission applications are those requesting a transfer from one school to another outside of the normal admissions round, for example when a family moves house part way through a school year.
If your request for an in-year transfer is not because of an address change or relocation from overseas, you are strongly advised to think very carefully before you apply. Problems that your child may be experiencing may not go away simply as a result of a change of school.
To apply for a transfer
You may also wish to visit the schools you are interested in. To do so please contact the schools direct to arrange a visit.
If you wish to apply for a place at a Warrington school you must complete the primary in-year application form or secondary in-year application form . Alternatively application forms are available in all Warrington schools.
The school admissions team aim to reply to all in-year transfer applications within 10 school days of receiving a fully completed application. It is not possible to take school holiday periods into account as school staff are not in school and therefore are unable to confirm or arrange any admissions.
Please note, the application is made up of 7 sections. Sections 1 to 6 must be completed by the parent/carer. Section 7 needs to be completed by your child’s current school. It is important that all sections are completed as incomplete forms will not be accepted.
The following school deals with their own in-year admissions. To apply contact the school direct:
- King’s Leadership Academy
You're not guaranteed a place at the school of your preference because all schools have limits to the number of children they can admit.
If the school is full in the year group where you would like a place for your child, your application will be refused, but you do have the right to appeal.
Children with statements of special needs
If your child has a statement of special needs/education, health and care plan you should contact the inclusion team for advice on 01925 443322.
