How do I apply for a school not in Norfolk?

If you wish to apply for a place at a school run by another local authority, you must include this school as one of your three preferences on your application form and return it to us. We will then work with that local authority to check whether they can offer you a place. Our job is then to make sure that when a parent could potentially be offered more than one place, their highest preference is offered and other potential offers refused.
