Changing your application or making a late application

Making a change to your application after the deadline

You cannot change your application after the deadline unless there has been a significant and material change in your circumstances. For example:

  • a change of address
  • a sibling has started, or has an accepted offer of a place, at your preferred school (or its linked infant or junior school, for primary phase applications)

Such changes must be notified in writing to the Admissions Team by:

  • 6 January 2021 (for Year 7 applicants), or
  • 12 February 2021 (for Year R and Year 3 applicants)

No changes can be made after these dates.

If you wish to change your application for any other reasons, you will have to make a late application.

Making a late application

Applications received after the closing date (see key dates)  will not be processed until after all on-time applications have been considered.

Please note that if we are able to offer your child a place at a school named on your late application, any previous offer will automatically be withdrawn.  Year R applicants that have taken in their evidence of address and date of birth to a school that has already been offered from an earlier application will need to contact the Admissions Team to advise if they no longer wish for a late application to be processed. Taking the evidence into the school does not indicate that you no longer wish for a subsequent application to be processed.
