In Year Applications
Please apply directly to the school for in-year places using the form below. Please do not apply via the Local Authority. Forms can be returned to the school office for the attention of Ms Jane Allen, Admissions Manager or by emailing email@example.com. Paper copies are also available from the school office.
It is not always possible for us to offer a place, however we do hold a waiting list which unsuccessful applicants can join if they wish.
The list is ranked in order using our admissions criteria set out in our Admissions Policy. If a place becomes available, we will then contact the parents of the child who is at the top of the list to offer them a place.
The continued interest list will be held until 30 June 2019, at which point they will close.
