Applying for other year groups

Some schools in neighbouring authorities have a main intake of pupils into Year 9 or Year 10, e.g. the High schools in Dorset and the University Technical Colleges in Salisbury and Reading. Hampshire residents wishing to apply for these schools should contact the Admissions Team for an application form.

If you wish to apply for a school place outside of the usual transfer times (starting school, transfer from infant to junior school, transfer from primary to secondary school),  you will need to complete an in-year application form. Please refer to the Guidance on applying for a school place in-year for further information.
