In-year transfer

​Moving to a different school at any time other than the usual admission to Reception class, transfer to junior school, or transfer to secondary school, is known as an ‘in-year transfer’.

Children may transfer to the school throughout the year provided that the school has places available and we can meet the needs of the child.  Families should apply directly to the school for in-year transfers.  

You can complete an online application to transfer schools in year - click here.  If the school does not currently have any places available, you will be added to the waiting list once your transfer form has been received.  If you cannot complete the online application, you need to download and complete the in year transfer form (below_.
