If you have not yet applied for a school place for your child, you will need to complete a paper application form which is available from Customer Services on 01225 713010, alternatively you can download a copy of the form from our website here. Late applications cannot be submitted online.
We recommend that you read the terms of acceptance prior to accepting the offer of a school place.
If you submitted an online application before the deadline date, details of how to appeal for any school your child has been refused a place at as well as how to add your child's name to the waiting list, will be contained within the email that will be sent to you, ahead of national offer date.
If you have submitted a paper application then details of how to appeal for any school which your child has been refused a place at, as well as how to add your child's name to the waiting list, will be contained within the outcome letter that will be posted out second class on national offer date.
Only one offer of a school place for each child can be held at any one time. This means that if you submit a new application for your child, your new preferences will automatically supersede any preferences named on your earlier application. If any of your new preferences are agreed, the place previously offered will automatically be withdrawn.
