In-year admissions

An ‘in-year admission’ is when you apply to a school outside the normal admissions round and at a time when your child should already be attending school.

You would normally be making an in-year application if you have recently moved, you have arrived from another country or you want to transfer your child to another school.

If your child is already in school and you are thinking about a transfer to another school, you will need to be aware that many schools will already be full. It is advised that you avoid changing school when your child is in Year 6 of primary school or Year 10 or 11 of secondary school. This is an important time in your child’s education so you should only consider moving school if there is very good reason to do so.
