When making your application for a school place, please remember to:  

  • use all 5 preferences, using only use 1 or 2 preferences decreases the chances of being offered a place at a preferred school;
  • 1st preference first isn’t allowed, –  schools don’t know the preference order families provide;
  • any supplementary information needs to be provided by the closing date  (this applies if a child is previously looked after, is seeking admission under exceptional needs or if a family wish to apply for their child to be admitted out of chronological age group)
  • use the child’s actual permanent address. Using that of a friend, relatives, childminder or renting a property to gain a school place are all considered fraud and places can be withdrawn.
