Apply for an In-year Transfer

Home residence is not changing: If you wish to transfer your child to a different school at any time (except due to moving house), you should discuss this with the Headteacher of your current school. Then you should approach the Headteacher of your chosen school and discuss the possibility of admission, explaining why you want to change schools.

Home residence is changing: Where a request is made because of a change of address, please ensure that adequate notice is given for the transfer to be considered and arranged. The Admissions Team are unable to consider applications until confirmation of a moving date has been received.

If your application for transfer is approved, your child will change schools at the beginning of a term or half term.
