Where to find help

The School Admissions service deals with everything to do with allocating school places, including:

  • producing written information for parents about primary and secondary school admissions;
  • coordinating transferring pupils from primary to secondary school;
  • coordinating applications for admission into reception classes for the first time in September;
  • providing advice and guidance to parents on admission procedures, including the transfer of pupils between schools;
  • acting as the initial contact for parents who want to make appeals for community and voluntary controlled schools which are full;
  • representing community and voluntary controlled schools as the admitting authority at independent appeal hearings.

We can be contacted in the following ways.
