Primary school places and admissions

Make your application

You should read the Primary Admission Guide before you proceed to make your application. This document contains important information about how your application will be considered:

Parents can choose to apply online or by a paper application form. You should only make one application.

To make your application online, use the button below:

Schools Admission Online System

 If you do not feel able to make an application online and wish to apply using a paper application form, a downloadable version is also available below:

However, please note that the local authority do not automatically acknowledge the receipt of paper applications. You will not receive an email notifying you of your offer if you apply using a paper application. 


Your application should be submitted by 15 January 2018. After this date late applications can only be made by paper application.

If you are applying for a school which requires supplementary information, you will be required to complete an additional form which must be returned to the school.

Late applications

If you have not made your application by the closing date you will still need to do so. You can only do this by submitting the paper application.

Late applications will not be considered until all ontime applications have been considered and allocated. The School Admissions Team will endeavour to make an offer of a school place on the offer day for late applications; however this is not always possible. In this situation you will be offered a place as soon as possible.
