Applying for a school place in-year
An in-year admission is when a child needs an immediate school place during the school year
There are two main reasons for this. You might be moving house or unhappy with your child’s current school.
In-year applications can be made at any time.
Applications are considered no more than four weeks in advance. Exceptionally, applications requesting a September start will be processed from 11 June 2018.
Paper forms are available from schools on request. Completed paper forms should be returned to the school.
To apply for a place at a school outside of Hampshire, you must contact the school or the local authority there.
- Receiving the decision
Schools will aim to respond in writing within 10 school days.
If you are offered a place:
- speak to the school to arrange a start date
If you are refused a place:
- your child will be added to the waiting list
- you will also have the right of appeal against the decision
- Finding a school
If you need help finding a school place for your child, please contact the County Admissions Team. This team can advise you about the nearest school with a place.
