School applications for foreign national children

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. Find out more about right of abode.

More information about school applications for foreign national children and children resident outside England is available on GOV.UK.

Families arriving in Middlesbrough from overseas who have school-aged children should contact the Ethnic Minority Achievement Team in the first instance to apply for school places.

The Ethnic Minority Achievement Team offers support with completing school admission forms and educational assistance. The team provides support for new arrivals to Middlesbrough, Traveller, fair and circus pupils, and those for whom English is an additional language.
