Secondary school place offers

Secondary school place offers

All parents who apply for their child's secondary school place by the deadline of 31 October 2023 will receive an offer of a secondary school place in one of 2 ways:

  • Online: Offers will be emailed on 1 March 2024
  • Paper form: Offers will be posted by letter on 1 March 2024

See Apply for a secondary school place for admission arrangements and the application process.

From 1 March 2024 this page will contain information for parents about school place offers and what to do next.

Late applications

Late applications are applications that have been received after the deadline. They are dealt with in rounds and each round has a cut off for applications to be included in it. The allocation process can take a number of weeks, depending on how many applications are received.

Emails will be sent to all late applicants who apply online. We will only inform parents of children on a waiting list if we are able to offer a place. Otherwise, their child's name will remain on the waiting list for the next round.

There is no need to contact us after completing a late application form, or on the process start date - we will contact you once an offer has been made.

The rounds can take up to 4 weeks to process and send offers to parents:
