School admissions waiting list

There is a waiting list for each school.  You can request that your child is placed on a waiting list for more than one school.

Children are placed on waiting lists using the school’s oversubscription criteria.


For entry to September's reception and year 7, late applicants are slotted into the list according to their priority within the criteria rather than the date the application is received.

If a place becomes available, the child highest on the waiting list is offered the place. This is not dependent on whether an appeal has been submitted.

For September admission, the waiting lists are maintained until the end of the autumn term. 

If a place has not become available by the Christmas break, parents need to submit an In-Year Application in the new year.
