Secondary school places and admissions

Before making your application

Before making your application for a secondary school place for September 2019, please check the following information:

  • Applications should be made to your home local authority. If you do not live in Swindon you should apply to the local authority for the area where you live.
  • All parents need to make an application for a place at a Secondary School.
  • You can apply for places in three named schools (three preferences). These can be within, or outside, the Borough of Swindon. The Admissions Team encourages parents to use all three preferences to ensure they maximise their chances of being allocated one of their preferred schools.
  • The offer of a preferred school place is dependent on the number of applications received and the number of places available. Priority for places will be determined by the individual school’s admission criteria.
