Within-Year Admissions
If you move in to the Borough outside the normal admission round (September), or if you want to change schools then you apply to the Pupil Services Team for a place.

For all other admission applications that do not include a house move, your admission will normally be delayed until the start of the next half term. This is both to minimise disruption to your child’s education, and to class structures.

Once you have been notified by the Council that we have a place available for your child, you should contact us immediately. We will then arrange an Admission Meeting with our Headteacher and Family Outreach Officer to discuss your child, and how best we can support them in their school move.

You must fill in the In-Year Transfer Form, and ask your child’s current school to add their relevant information, and then and submit it to the Pupil Services Team.
