School Admissions

The School Admissions Self Service is designed to provide key information and guidance 24/7 assisting parents and the Council in what is a very challenging period.  Recognising that support is critical and the time lines are limited, Self Service can be bespoke to your exact specifications.  The service will handle most enquiries and some examples of the help and guidance provided are as follows:

  • How to apply or accept an offer for a school place
  • If you have a query with an application you have already submitted
  • School waiting lists
  • Received an offer for a school that was not your preferred choice
  • Appeal process
  • Admission closing dates
  • Find schools in your local area
  • Free school meals, School transport or School term dates
