Late applications may be considered after all other applications, and it is recommended that a reason is provided with any late application. Where a reason has been provided and this is to the satisfaction of the admission authority, a late application may be treated alongside all other applications.

The results of applications will be available from 10.00am on National Offer Day which is Tuesday 16 April 2019.

Guide for Parents

We recommend that all parents/carers consult our Guide for Parents before applying for a school place, as it contains key information on school admissions.

Sibling links

A ‘sibling link’ is where your preference for a school place is considered with a higher priority than applicants who don't have siblings attending the school. For junior schools, this includes any brothers or sisters (including 'half' and 'step' brothers or sisters) living in the same house as their primary place of residence, who attend the preferred junior school in Years 3 to 5 at the time of application.
