The round for admission to Year 3 at junior schools in September 2021 is now open. It closes on Wednesday 15 January 2021.
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 children are 'due to transfer', which is the term used in the admission rules.
In most situations, children who are attending a primary school on the opening day of the admission round are not considered 'due to transfer'. These applications have a lower priority for a place at a junior school. This is even if they live in the catchment area of a junior school.
