In Year Admissions

 

If you are seeking an immediate school place for your child you can apply online via the Hampshire County Council website by clicking on the link below.

 

If the Year Group that you would like to apply for is full, your child will be added to the Hampshire County Council's waiting list that is held at Winchester. As soon as a place becomes available we will write to you offering a place. Please note that the waiting lists are cleared at the end of every academic year, and if you are still requiring a place you will have to re-apply online in the September.

 

In-year applications will not be processed more than 4 weeks in advance of the place being needed. Exceptionally, in-year applications requesting a September 2017 start will not be processed until 12 June 2017. Please refer to the guidance on in-year admissions for further information
