If you missed the closing date for secondary school applications for September 2015, you should make a late application as soon as possible. Contact the School Admissions Team for a paper application form.

Are you looking after a child who is not your own child or a close relative? If you are, it may be considered to be a private fostering arrangement and you must notify the Council's Children's Social Care Team. If we receive an application for a school place for a child who is not living with one of their parents, we will ask you for further details and make sure that the Social Care Team is aware of any child who is being privately fostered. (This does not apply to children in public care who are being looked after by foster parents or who are subject to formal court or guardianship orders). More information can be found at Private fostering.
