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 and request that you wait until you have heard from us. 

Where possible the 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.
