Schools and education

Open days and evenings

When starting to prepare your application for a school place (usually one year before your child is due to start primary or secondary school for the first time), we recommend that parent/carers take the opportunity to view schools before expressing their preferences.

In your application for primary and secondary schools, you can express up to 5 preferences, and we recommend that you consider several schools, including your 'catchment' school, when planning school visits.

Please note that there is no co-ordinated application process for Year 12 and that applications should be made directly to the preferred school or college.
