Accepting the place
Go to the accept or decline a school place web page to accept or decline the place you've been offered.
You'll need to accept or decline by 4 May 2022.
If you are not happy with the place offered, we recommend that you accept the place and remain on the waiting list for higher preferred schools - doing so does not change your chance of gaining a place and you still have the right of appeal. Any requests for changes have to be made in writing.
If you're not offered the school you listed as your first preference you'll automatically be added to the waiting list for any schools you listed as a higher preference.
If we can offer you a place from the waiting list at a school you listed as a higher preference we'll allocate this school to you.
We'll remove the place we originally offered you.
We won't contact you in advance of doing this.
Waiting list information isn't available until after 4 May 2022.
If you haven't been offered the school you wanted, you can appeal the decision. Appeals have to be received by us by 18 May 2022.
Go to the school appeals page to find out more.
Moving to a primary school
If you would like your child to move to a primary school you'll need to complete an in-year application.
If you listed a junior school as a preference, we will usually offer you a place if there's one available. It's recommended you accept the place as it will guarantee your child a place for year 3.
