School admissions

You will need to apply for a school place if your child is starting any type of school for the first time, or transferring to a new school. These pages give you all of the information you need to know to understand the different types of school which are available, find a suitable place for your child, and to guide you through the admissions process.

If you are applying to an independent (or private) school, you will need to contact the school directly to find out about their admission arrangements. If you plan to teach your child outside the school environment, please go to our Elective home education page.

We are currently running a public consultation on admission arrangements for the academic year 2023 to 2024.
