Go on a secondary school waiting list

Go on a secondary school waiting list

Get your child's name added to a waiting list and how long the waiting list is kept for

If you don’t get a place at your preferred school you can indicate on the Parent Portal  that you want your child to be added to the waiting lists for that school.

If you want your child to be added to a waiting list you must:

  • tick the box that says 'hold this place while I pursue waiting list and appeal options'
  • tick the box to indicate the school you want your child to be on the waiting list for

If you ask to go on a waiting list for your preferred school your original place offer will be held for you until an offer can be made for a higher preference school.

Waiting lists will be available  2 April 2021.

Schools will keep a waiting list at least one term from the start of the academic year until 31 December 2021.
