Apply for a school place

The deadline for making applications for transferring from primary or junior school to secondary school in September 2020 was 31 October 2019. The online applications portal has now closed.

If you did not apply on time for your child you can still apply by completing the in year transfer form lower down this page (you are able to indicate on that form that your application is for a place in September 2020). You will receive notification of the place offered by a letter posted on 2nd March. You will not receive an automated email notification on 2nd March.

The North Lincolnshire Schools Guide 2020-21 may be helpful to you as it contains information on whether schools have been oversubscribed in the past, what their admissions criteria are, and how your application will be processed.

There are also “Moving up” guides (one for parents, one for children) about the move to secondary school in the documents section below.

Online applications for starting school in reception in September 2020 can be made from October 2019 via the link below. The deadline for making applications is 15 January 2020.

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

You can contact the School Admissions Team if you would like a paper form sent to you.
