Apply for an in-year high school place

Apply for a school place to start during school year 2021/2022

The following schools do not co-ordinate in-year applications with Ealing Council. If you wish to apply you will need to do so directly with the school(s):

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.


School places are offered weekly (during term time only). All applications received before 4pm on a Friday will be included in the following week's allocations. You will be sent a letter by email within 10 school days of making an application confirming the outcome. Please be aware that updates cannot be given by the admissions team until after your application has been processed and the outcome confirmed in your letter. 

For example, if you apply after 4pm on Friday 3 September and before 4pm on Friday 10 September you can expect to receive an email to confirm the outcome of your application by 4pm on Friday 17 September. The admissions team will not be able to advise you of the outcome before Monday 20 September.

Children of sixth form/college age

If your child was born before 1 September 2005 we recommend you contact the Connexions service for advice on post-16 education or employment advice.
