Year 7 late applications

If your child is due to start Year 7 in September 2021 and you have missed the official closing date of 7th November 2020, you can submit a late application.

Process for late applications

Applications received after 7th November 2020 but before 17th January 2021

Forms received after the closing date will be considered as late applications unless there is a valid reason for being late e.g. change of address, change in a medical condition or exceptional social reasons.

  • Late applications with a valid reason will be considered with applications received on time.
  • Late applications without a valid reason will be considered after those applications received on time.
  • Late applications with a valid reason will be placed on a waiting list if the school is oversubscribed.
  • Late applications without a valid reason will be considered after those applications received on time.
  • If the school has places available the child will be offered a place at that school.
