Apply for a school place in North Lincolnshire

Use forms and links from this page to apply for a school place in North Lincolnshire.


Applying for the September 2024 intakes

Please read the relevant pages of the North Lincolnshire Schools Guide before you apply. This will help you understand how your application will be processed.

Intake places are NOT allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please take time to consider which schools you list on your application (you can list up to six in the order you prefer them) after you have researched how likely your child is to get a place based on previous years’ applications, using the information on the schools pages and the interactive catchment map on our website.

Only listing one school on your application does not mean your child will get a place at that school.

If you do not live in the catchment area of your first preference school, it is a good idea to list other schools as lower preferences (2nd, 3rd, 4th etc) on your application so we know which other schools you would prefer if we are unable to give your child a place at the first preference school.

The dedicated portal for secondary school applications will close on 31 October 2023.

The dedicated portal for primary and junior applications will close on 15 January 2024.

You can contact the School Admissions Team on 01724 297000 or admissionstoschool@northlincs.gov.uk if you need some advice or would like a paper form sent to you.


In year transfer to a different school

If you want your child to move school (for example if you have moved house), this is known as an in year transfer.
