Applying for an In-Year Admission
Parents who require an In-Year place should contact the school office first to see if there are spaces in the relevant year group by phoning 01606 668270 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We can arrange an opportunity for you to visit, to meet the headteacher, discuss the curriculum, tour the site and to meet your child’s potential new class.
If you then decide to apply for a place this can be done via Cheshire West and Chester's In-Year transfer application. You can apply for a place twenty school days before the date the place is required.
Once the application is received by school you will hear directly from us with regards to the offer of a place (if one is available) and an agreed start date. At this stage data collection forms will be supplied to obtain information that school needs and also an information booklet which provides lots of helpful information about school.
Please note that any In Year applications made on the admissions website between 18th July and 31st August will not be available for schools to view and process until 1st September 2023.
If you have any questions/queries please contact our office team who will be happy to help.
The school is responsible for all In Year applications and places are determined using the criteria contained within our Admissions policy. Any subsequent appeal is determined by our Appeal Guidelines which adheres to the DFE published schools appeals code. Further guidance on appeals can be found via the DFE link
