Secondary school place offers - September 2020

How will I find out which school my child has been allocated?

All parents who apply for their child's secondary school place by the deadline of 31 October 2019 will receive an offer of a school place for their child in one of two ways:

  • If the application is submitted online, the child’s allocated school place will be sent via email on 2 March 2020 to the email address used to apply.
  • If the application is submitted using a paper form, the child's allocated school place will be sent via a letter posted on 2 March 2020.

From 2 March 2020 this page will contain information for parents about school place offers and what to do next.

I have submitted a late application, when will I find out which school my child has been allocated?

Late applications are applications received after 5pm on 31 October 2019 and are dealt with in rounds. Each round has a cut off for applications to be included in it. The allocation process can take a number of weeks, depending on how many applications are received.

Emails will be sent to all late applicants who apply online. We will only inform parents of children on a waiting list if we are able to offer a place. Otherwise, their child's name will remain on the waiting list for the next round.

There is no need to contact us after completing a late application form, or on the process start date - we will contact you once an offer has been made.
