High volume of school applications

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

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

Currently our estimated processing time can take up to 20 school days. You're advised to wait, rather than contact us, before this timeframe has passed.

We have now published School Term Dates 2022 - 2027.
