High volume of school applications

The School Admissions service is currently experiencing high volumes of school applications for the start of September 2021/22 academic year. 

We're working through applications and ask for your patience - please wait until you have heard from us. 

Our aim remains to meet our target of issuing a decision within 10 to 15 school days from the start of the new academic year. If 15 school days have not yet passed since you applied, please don't call for a decision.

We have now published School Term Dates 2022 - 2027.
