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. 


If you apply online, decisions will available during the day on 16 April 2021 on the school admissions website.

If you complete a paper application form, we will send you a letter on 16 April 2021 by second class post, telling you the decision.
