In Year admissions

Applications for school places ‘in year’ are for admission after the first day of the school year into any year group. You will need to complete our In Year Application form, which will be forwarded to your schools of choice.  Alternatively hard copies of the application form can be found in the "In Year Admissions" booklet or contact 0300 123 5012.

If you wish to apply for a school in another local authority, you will need to contact the relevant authority to find out how to make an application.
