Transfer to junior school

The admission round for transfer to junior schools in September 2020 is open from Friday 8 November 2019. The round closes Wednesday 15 January 2020. Late applications can be made online until 29 January 2020.

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 2020). These pupils are deemed “due to transfer” which is a term used in admission rules
  • Children who are attending a primary school on the opening day of the admission round are not considered due to transfer. Therefore these applications have a lower priority for a place at a junior school, even if the child lives in the catchment area of a junior school
  • If you are applying for a place at a primary school, you cannot make your application online. You must download and return an admissions application form (pdf) or contact us to request a copy. There is not normally a point of admission to Year 3 at primary schools.
