Waiting lists for infant and primary schools

If your child has been refused a place at a preferred school, you can add their name to the school's waiting list. Learn more about waiting lists.

The deadline for receipt of waiting list forms is 30 April 2024.

Lists for most schools will be maintained until 30 June 2025. If a place becomes available for your child, we'll write to you.
