Admission to school

Apply Online

Before you apply online, it is important to know what type of admission you are applying for. There are two types:

  • Main round admissions – this applies specifically to the main intake of pupils who are due to start Year R at a primary or infant school, Year 3 at a junior school or Year 7 at a secondary school in September 2016.

  • In Year admissions – these are when a child needs an immediate school place outside of the usual transfer times, for example, because of a house move.

Main round applications

The main round online application system is currently closed.

For Hampshire parents wishing to apply for their child to transfer to Year 7 at secondary school in September 2016, the online system will open on Monday 14 September 2015.

For Hampshire parents wishing to apply for a Year R or Year 3 place (junior schools only) in September 2016, the online system will open on Sunday 1 November 2015

Non Hampshire residents must apply though their home local authority.

In-year applications

If you are seeking a school place for you child to start immediately (or within the next 4 weeks) you can apply for a place using the link below. In-year applications for a September 2016 start can also be made using this form. Please refer to the guidance on in-year admissions for further information.

If you are having trouble opening the online application page, please try lowering your security settings.

Please note that if you have used the online system previously to make an in-year application, you will be able to log in using your same user ID and password. If you have previously made a main round online application, you must register to use the in-year online system.
