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.
