We allocate school places using the addresses we hold at the closing date (15th January)
Change of address before the closing date
If you move before the closing date for applications, you will be able to change your address and your preferences (if necessary) on your online application up to the closing date.
You will be able to provide your new address and / or change your preferences if you advise us by email or letter. We must receive any new information about your address or preferences by 5pm on 15th January 2017 for the application to be considered as 'on time'.
Please note that we will need to receive documentary evidence of your new address e.g. a copy of a signed lease / rental agreement (6 months minimum) or copy of a solicitor's letter confirming the exchange of contracts / completion date. We need to receive this information by 5pm on 15th January 2017 for the application to be considered 'on time'.
Change of address after the closing date
Please inform us of your new address, by email or letter, so that we can communicate with you.
If you move address after the closing date and wish to change your preferences as a result, you should complete a late application form. The application must be accompanied by documentary evidence of your new address (e.g a copy of signed lease/rental agreement (minimum six months) or copy of solicitor’s letter confirming exchange of contracts/completion date). Late applications are dealt with during our further rounds of allocation which start in May 2017. We will be able to use your new address for correspondence purposes only.
However, your on time application will be processed and a school place will be allocated according to the address we hold on the closing date (i.e. where you lived on 15th January 2017). If appropriate, we will then process any late applications you make in the next round of allocations using your new address.
We will not process an application for a child until they are residing in the UK. The only exception is the children of UK Armed Service Personnel and other Crown Servants. For families of service personnel with confirmed posting to their area, or crown servants returning from overseas to live in that area, admission authorities must allocate a place in advance of the family arriving in the area, provided the application is accompanied by an official letter declaring a relocation date and a Unit postal address or quartering area address.
