In year admission


About in year applications


In year applications are when you want to move your child from the primary or  junior school they go to now to a different one. This happens outside of the normal admissions process. You might want to make an in year application if you’ve recently moved.


You should speak to your current headteacher before deciding to change  your child's school, especially if your child is in secondary school where a move may disrupt their studies and exam results. 


Before you make an application we recommend you visit the school you want your child to go to and discuss a change of school with the Head Teacher. 


Read your preferred school(s) admissions policy on the school website for information about allocation of places, waiting lists and appeal procedure.


This will help you make an informed choice to see if the school is the most appropriate school for your child.
