Secondary school places and admissions

Make your application

If your child is due to start Year 7 in September 2021, you will need to complete the secondary application by 12 midnight on 31 October 2020.

Late applications

Late applications are not considered until all on-time applications have been considered and allocated.

For late applications we receive after the main application deadline and before the offer day, we will aim to offer a school place on the offer day. However, this is not always possible. If you don't receive an offer on the offer day, or if you make a late application after the offer day, we will aim to offer a school place as soon as possible.

Supplementary information

Some schools require supplementary information in addition to your main application with us. You need to check with the schools you are applying for. If the school needs supplementary information, you will need to complete an additional form. You submit this directly to the school.

Please note: You should read the secondary school admission guide before you start your application. This document contains important information about how we will consider your application.
