Waiting Lists

 Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools

The Autumn Term waiting list will close on 31 December.

An online form will be available between December and January for parents to use if you wish to keep your child’s name on the waiting list for the Spring Term.  If you do not complete this, your child will be automatically removed from the list and any appeals you have lodged will be cancelled as the Local Authority will assume you are no longer interested in a place.

Own Admission Authority Schools

The admissions authority for the school is responsible for maintaining their own waiting list in line with their published admission arrangements.

Further information on waiting lists can be found on the Local Authority website
