Apply for a school place

On 20 February the County Council agreed its school admission arrangements for 2018-19.

The new arrangements reinstate the previous priority given to pupils living out of catchment who have a sibling connection following the ruling of the School’s adjudicator on 31 January. There are also implications for parents who may have been affected by the sibling priority in 2016, and who have an application in for September 2017. You can read our full statement or view frequently asked questions [PDF] for more information.

If you are applying for a school place for September 2017 read the following information before completing the form.
