STOP PRESS for Secondary Transfer applicants

>Updated on 22 August 2014<

The closing date for Year 7 applications for September 2014 was 31 October 2013.

The outcome for on-time applications was 3 March 2014.  We have been processing late applications since 17 March 2014.

If you are yet to apply, an application form for late applications is available at the bottom of this page.

Waiting lists

Waiting lists for Hampshire secondary schools were created on 17 March.  Further information can be found here: http://www.hants.gov.uk/ad-waiting-lists

If you applied recently...

Applications are being processed in date order from when the application was received.  You will be notified of the outcome in a letter, which will be sent in the first class post.  At present, parents are being notified within five school days from receipt of an application for a Hampshire school; applications for a school outside of Hampshire are taking longer.  

What do I have to do next?

All letters sent from 17 March have an acceptance slip attached.  Please complete the slip within 10 days and return it to the County Admissions Team

We advise that you hold onto the allocated place even if it isn't at the school you hoped for, until a place at an alternative school has been secured.

Don't forget...

  • your child will automatically be added to the waiting list of any higher preference Hampshire school than the one you have been allocated;

  • you can appeal for any school for which you have received a refusal.
