The Countdown Is On To Apply For Secondary School Places

Parents of pupils who are due to start secondary school in Nottinghamshire in September 2017 are reminded that the closing date for applications is Monday, 31 October 2016.

Nottinghamshire parents will need to apply through Nottinghamshire County Council, even if they wish to apply for schools in other areas such as Nottingham City or Derbyshire.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s acting service director for education Marion Clay said: “If your child is in Year 6 at primary school, then if you’ve not already done so, you must now think about applying for a place at secondary school next September.

The easiest way to apply for a place is online at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions and this is the method the county council advise parents to use.

There are a number of golden rules when making an application:

1)    Apply on time

2)    Use all of your four preferences

3)    Check the admission over subscription criteria

4)    Other relevant information - parents need to make sure they mention any information that is relevant to their application which may affect how the admission oversubscription criteria are applied. They should also tell the Council if they are moving house as this may affect how their application is considered.  It is important to read the relevant sections in the Admissions to schools guide which is at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/admissionsguide

Parents also need to be aware of some important changes to home to school travel entitlement.

Secondary school offers will be made on Wednesday 1st March 2017 by email to those who apply online. Parents and carers who apply by post will be sent notification by second class post that day.
