In-year admissions (moving schools)

Current in-year applications September 2019 – July 2020

Following the Government guidelines for Covid-19, in-year application will remain closed for the remainder of this academic year. However during the pandemic, applications will still be processed for 'key workers' and 'vulnerable children and young people'. To apply, please contact the admission team providing details.

An in-year admission is when you are applying for a school place outside of the ‘normal admissions rounds’. (Normal admissions rounds are a statutory process where all parents/carers must apply for a place for their child to start school in the school’s year of entry at Primary, or Secondary school).

  • An in-year admission could be a move between Cambridgeshire schools, or a move to a Cambridgeshire school from a school in a different county or country.
  • To apply for a place at a school outside of Cambridgeshire you will need to apply to the local authority of the new school.

When can I apply?

  • For a school place starting from September 2020 (next academic year) you can apply from 1st June 2020.

Please see making an application for full details.
