A few parents may wish to apply to an all-through primary school for a place in Year 3. Primary schools in Hampshire will consider Year 3 applications for September 2018 from 11 June 2018.

Parents should complete the in-year application form (or paper copies available from the school). Applicants should expect a decision letter from the school after this date.

  • If you applied online, you will receive an email on the morning of the notification date. They can also log in to the online system to view the outcome
  • If you applied using a paper form, you will be sent a letter on the notification date by first class post. Please allow 3 working days for receipt

What happens next

There is no need for you to accept the place offered to your child at any Hampshire school.

However, please let us know in writing if you no longer need the place so that it can be offered to another child.

If you have not been offered a place at your preferred school, your child will be added to the waiting list.

You also have a right of appeal against the refusal.
