Understanding waiting lists

Waiting lists are maintained until July 2022. After this time the waiting lists will close, and you will need to make a new application if you still wish for your child to transfer schools. Applications for the new academic year 2022-2023 can be made from August 2022.

Please note that a child’s position on the waiting list can change as they are held in order of the admissions criteria. If a place becomes available, it will be offered to the first child on the waiting list.

The following schools maintain their own waiting lists and you will need to contact them directly for waiting list positions:
