In-year admissions

If you have moved address, recently arrived in Leicester or looking to change your child's school, you can apply for a place in one of our schools.

Further information

Applications have now closed

The application process for the current academic year 2016/17 has now closed. If you are applying for a school place for the next academic year 2017/2018 please apply from the 1 July 2017.

Application process

Your child must continue to attend their present school until they are admitted to another school (unless they can no longer get there due to a change of area).

Your application will be considered for a place to start school at the beginning of the new academic year, which commences from 29 August 2017. 

If you are looking for an in-year school place outside of Leicester, please apply directly to the local authority responsible for that school.

If we have been unable to offer your child a place at one or more of the schools you requested, we will automatically add your child’s name to the waiting list(s). Please note this only applies to community schools. For academies, free schools and voluntary aided schools you will need to contact the school direct to be added to their waiting lists.  Waiting lists for community schools will only operate for the academic year at the time of application, after which they will close.

Moving away from Leicester

If you are looking for an in-year school place outside of Leicester, please apply directly to the local authority responsible for that school.
