​Moving to a different school at any time other than the usual admission to Reception class, transfer to junior school, or transfer to secondary school, is known as an ‘in-year transfer’.

In-year applications are applications to start school now (or within the next month).

Children who have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan should contact the EHC team for advice on the application process which applies to them.

In-year school places for 2021/22

When will you hear about your in-year application?

If you are applying, or have already applied for an in-year school place for academic year 2021/22, please be aware that there may be a delay with processing your application due to the very high number of applications we have received.
We apologise for any delay, but please be assured that we are working hard to process your application as quickly as possible. You do not need to contact us again after submitting an application - we will contact you as soon as we have an outcome.
If your child does not have a school place, we may not be able to update you for at least 20 school days after receipt. Please do not email or call us about the status of your application until this time has passed (as this will cause additional delay to the process).
