When can my child start school?

If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013, you can now apply to start secondary school in September 2024.

If you want to apply for secondary school places in other year groups, see our in-year admissions page.

If your child has an education, health and care plan (EHCP), the arrangements for your child’s transfer will be different. The SEND team will contact you directly to explain the process further.
