Primary to secondary transfer (year 7) and transfer to a school with an atypical age of admission
If your child lives in Nottinghamshire, and you require a school place for September 2021, you must apply for a school place through Nottinghamshire County Council, even if the schools you want are outside Nottinghamshire.
Before applying, please read our Admissions to schools: Guide for parents and factsheet. These contain important information about how school places are allocated and the extra help available to you and your child:
- Applying for a secondary school place: Guide for parents [PDF]
Nottinghamshire County Council does not have any Atypical schools in the local authority area but there are some schools in neighbouring local authority areas. If you wish to apply for admission to these types of schools you can find details in Admissions to school: School Information 2021-2022 (secondary schools)
If you are unsure whether you live in the area covered by Nottinghamshire County Council, you can find your local council on GOV.UK.
The schools information documents give you details about all Nottinghamshire schools and includes a summary of oversubscription criteria which can help you decide which schools to apply for.
This fact sheet provides information about admission of children outside of the normal age group [PDF]
The additional information form can be used to submit additional information in support of your application for a school place for your child. You should only use this form to support applications for community and voluntary controlled schools in Nottinghamshire.
