Apply for a secondary school place Sept 2023

Late applications and moving after the deadline

Apply by the deadline

It is important that you apply by the closing date of 31 October 2022 otherwise your application will be treated as late and only be considered after all those received on time. This is unless you can provide proof that there were exceptional reasons that prevented you from applying on time.

After the allocation of places, late applications are treated in the same way as all other applications. 

Moving home during the application process

If you move house at any time after the deadline date and before your child starts school, you must inform the School Admissions team. Your application and any offer you hold will be reviewed.

If you move into the borough after the closing date please contact School Admissions for further information and advice.  

If you move into the borough after the allocation of places you can still complete an application and name up to six preferences. We will offer you a place at one of your preferred schools if this is possible. If all the places at your preferred schools have been allocated, your child's name will be added to waiting lists in criteria order.  

If you move within the borough after the allocation of places and you can make a change of preference request and name your new preferred schools.
