Coronavirus - Advice on School Applications

All parents and carers are politely asked to note that although you will be able to continue to make a mid-term (in-year) application, your application will now be held on file until the Government/DfE issue further guidance to confirm the full re-opening of all schools.

Applications from parents and carers wishing to make a late Year 7 transfer application for any reason, for entry Autumn 2020, will be processed as best we are able during the current school restrictions.

My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

- Director, Children and Family Services
