Open days and evenings

Planned maintenance to payments system

We're making essential updates to our payments system from 1pm on Thurs 19 October to midday on Fri 20 October. We apologise that we won't be able to take online or telephone payments during this time

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.
