Secondary school places and admissions

Receiving and accepting your offer

The offer day for secondary school places is Monday, 2 March 2020.

If you made an on-time application

We will send you your offer by email on the offer day using the email address you supplied in the online application.

If you made a late application

If we are able to offer you a place by the offer day, we will send you your offer on the offer day just like an on-time application. If we are not able to offer you a place by the offer day, or if you make a late application after the offer day, we will send you the offer as soon as we can.

If you supplied a legible email address in the paper application, we will send the offer to this email address. If you did not supply a legible email address, we will send you the offer by second-class post to your home address. 

We cannot give any information about the offer of a place before the offer day. After that, we can only give information to the person who made the application.

Accepting or rejecting an offer

If you made an on-time application

Your offer email will contain a link, allowing you to accept the offer online. If you have forgotten your password, you should contact the school to accept the place.

If you are not happy with the school you have been offered, you can change your application. However, you should consider this option carefully.

If you made a late application

If we have sent you an offer via email and provided a link to accept the offer, you can accept the offer online. If you have not received an email containing a link to accept the offer - or if you have forgotten your password - you should contact the school to accept the place. 

Again, you do have the option to change your application, but you should consider this option carefully.
