Mid Year Applications
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.
Parents wishing to make a mid-year application must apply directly to the school using the mid-application form below:
Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in our admission policy, will be applied.
If there are no places available, the child will be offered a place on our waiting list.
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.
