Waiting List

If your child has not been offered a place at your preferred community or voluntary controlled school then your child's name will automatically be placed on a waiting list. A child's position on the waiting list is not fixed and can be subject to change during the year i.e. they can go up or down the list as other children are added.

If the number of places offered falls below the schools published admission number then places will be offered to pupils on the waiting list. Pupils names are held on the waiting list in accordance with the admission arrangements. The lists are kept until the 31 December in the year of admission.


You also have a right of appeal to an independent panel.
