Use all your preferences
It is important to get lots of information before deciding on your preferred schools and the order you would like to put them on your application. We will offer you the highest preferred school if your child qualifies for a place here, so please consider your order of preferences carefully.
When can I apply?
You can apply for your child's junior school place to start in autumn 2022 from 12:01am on Friday 10 September 2021.
Deadline for applications
Apply before the Friday 15 January 2022 deadline. Otherwise your application will be considered as late and may mean you are offered a school much further away than your preferred ones.
What happens next?
You will receive an email once you have submitted your application. It is important to check carefully that you have received this and that it confirms your application has been fully submitted. If your application is not fully submitted, it will be considered as late.
We will send offers of places to those who applied on time on 18 April 2022.
Making changes to your application
You can make changes to your application right up to the deadline, 15 January 2022, but if you do make a change you must remember to re-submit your application. If you do not your application may be considered as late.
