Guidance notes for completing your in-year school application

You will need to apply to the following schools directly and not use the in-year application form:

Year 10 and Year 11

If your child is currently in Year 10 or Year 11 and is already in education, it is not advisable to transfer schools. There is no guarantee that options and exam boards can be matched between schools and coursework cannot be transferred. This would seriously disadvantage their final GCSE grades.

If your child is not currently in education continue to make your in-year application


Applications are processed weekly during term time. All applications recieved after 4pm on a Friday and before 4pm the following Friday will be included in the next round of offers. In-year offers are made every Thursday during term time (please be aware that confirmation of an offer can not be given until the following day). For example if you apply after 4pm on Friday 1 September and before 4pm on Friday 8 September your application will be processed for offers made on Thursday 14 September and can be confirmed on Friday 15 September.

Children of sixth form/college age

If your child was born before 1 September 2001 we recommend you contact the Connexions service for advice on post-16 education or employment advice.
