Top tasks for School admissions

Parents must apply for a school place for every child moving from nursery to reception, or primary to secondary school. Applications can be made online when parents have received their application pack. The school admissions FAQs page answers some of the most common questions about admissions.

Overseas nationals entering the UK who want to apply for a place at a state-funded school must make sure they have 'right of abode', or that the conditions of their immigration status allow them to access a state-funded school. It is parents' responsibility to check this when applying for a school place. More information about right of abode is available on GOV.UK.
