Transfer to junior school

The admission round for transfer to junior schools in September 2019 is open from Thursday 8 November 2018 until Tuesday 15 January 2019.

When does a child start junior school?

  • The transfer to junior school admission round is for children in their last year at an infant school (aged 7+ on 1 September 2019).  These pupils are deemed “due to transfer” which is a term used in admissions rules
  • Children who are attending a primary school on the opening day of the admission round are not considered as due to transfer. Their applications will have the lowest priority for a place at a junior school, even if they live in the catchment area of a junior school
