From the 1st April 2022, the Local Authority will no longer manage mid-year admissions for schools that are their own admissions authority, i.e. academies, voluntary aided and foundation schools. All mid-year applications should be made directly to the school, using the mid-year application form available from the school office. Mid-year applications (sometimes called in-year applications) are any application for a school place made to a year group, apart from September admissions to Reception (primary and infant schools)/Year 3 (junior schools).  For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group. Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.

Applications should be submitted no sooner than half a term before the planned start date.  We will endeavour to reply to your application within no more than three school days.  Where a place is not available to your child, they will automatically be added to a waiting list which is held in accordance with the school’s admissions criteria which can be found in the Admissions policies.

When we have received your completed form, your child will be offered a place, if one is available, if not, they will be added to the waiting list and we will contact you if a place becomes available.

Any appeals submitted after the appropriate deadline must still be heard, in accordance with whatever timescale is set out in the timetable published by the admission authority.

This information is set out in paragraphs 2.1 to 2.4 of the appeals code.
