Apply to change school during the academic year (in-year transfer)

Check for vacancies

Before making an application, you should check if a school has a vacancy.

If a school has a vacancy, it does not mean that we'll be able to offer your child a place there. This could be because:

  • the place is filled by the time we process your application
  • other children may have a higher priority
  • we may already be working to fill places from the continuing interest list

Schools with no vacancies

You may still apply for a school which doesn’t have any vacancies.

If we're unable to offer your child a place, we'll add them to the continuing interest list for the rest of the school year.
