Current status

Applicants who applied online by 15 January 2019 will be contacted on 16 April 2019 with the outcome of their application.


It is no longer possible to apply online for a Year 3 junior school place for 2019/20 entry. The deadline for receipt of completed junior school applications was 15 January 2019.

If you missed this deadline, you must complete a paper application form (pdf format, 40Kb). You should also explain why you were unable to make the application on time. Application forms submitted between 16 January and 3 May 2019 will be processed on 12 June 2019.

Application notes

You can list three different schools in order of preference. We advise that you enter your catchment (or designated area) school as one of your preferences.

When you apply for a school place you will need the following:

  • Your child's date of birth.
  • The names of the schools you wish to apply for. We highly recommend that you select three preferences.
  • An email address in order to receive a response, (need help setting up an email account?).
  • Your unique identifier number. This can be found in the letter we sent you.

If you don’t have the unique identifier number you can still submit your online application.

Forgotten your password?

You can reset your password for the online application portal on the forgotten password page.
