Please be aware that School Admissions is moving to another building on Monday 16 December. Whilst every effort will be taken to maintain the level of service, there may be some unforeseen disruptions to our telephone system. Emails will be unaffected.
The links below will take you to the relevant pages. Primary admissions are for entrance into schools when your child is aged 4-5. Choose Secondary for admissions when your child is 11 years old. For other year groups choose the In Year admissions system.
For 16 + you can find information about colleges and other opportunities. Please note that admissions must be made directly with the colleges.
How we tell you about an offer of a place
In the interest of security we cannot:
- tell you about an offer by phone
- send emails to addresses not used on the original application
- send email if you applied using a paper form
Your response to an offer must be made in writing.
Can be found on the Admissions Arrangements page.
Local Authorities, in their role as commissioners, must plan and secure sufficient school places in their area.
The School Organisation Strategy (pdf, 2.9 MB)(opens new window)identifies the projected need for places and the actions required to ensure families have access to high quality education provision. The Strategy will be reviewed annually and specific schemes agreed in the context of available funding and demographic trends.
Work continues with the aim of providing more places. Details of these and the methods of applying for them will be published on the Primary additional places update page as appropriate.
