The school admissions team aim to reply to all In-Year applications within 10 school days of receiving a fully completed application. However, some applications may take longer to process.
It is not possible to take school holiday periods into account as staff are not in school and therefore unable to confirm or arrange admissions.
In-year admissions not dealt with by the council
The following schools deal with their own in-year admissions. To apply contact the school direct:
You are not guaranteed a place at the school(s) of your preference because all schools have limits to the number of children they can admit into each year group.
If your child is refused a place at any school for which you have expressed a preference, you will be given the right to appeal against the decision. This applies whether the school is an academy, community controlled, free or faith school.
Children with Education Health and Care Plans
If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan and is attending a mainstream school then the appropriate In-Year transfer application should be completed. If the child attends a special provision school then you should contact the EHCP Assessment Team in the first instance for advice on 01925 442917.
