School Admissions Online
(Please click image for Admissions Online)
The facility to apply for a secondary school place in September 2015 opens on 1 September until midnight on 31 October. Once the facility closes you will not be able to apply online and your application may be considered ‘late’. Late applications will be considered after timely ones where schools are full. If you miss the deadline please contact 0345 155 1019 as soon as possible.
You are strongly advised to read The Next Step booklet (1.05MB - pdf help) which contains guidance about the process and the Schools available. It also includes information on the limited ability of the Local Authority to provide help with school transport and it is important, before expressing a preference, to understand who will be responsible for transport to school.
You should have received a Unique Identifying Number (UID) and you can use this to apply but it is not essential, just click ‘No UID’ and follow the screens if you do not have one.
You should apply to the Local Authority where you are living e.g. Devon residents should apply on this site, Other Local Authorities such as Plymouth, Torbay, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset will accept applications from residents of their area. Contact details can be found at Other Local Authority Contact Details.
You may also use this admissions facility to apply for places at University Technical Colleges and Studio Schools who are offering places in year 10 and 9 in September 2015. For further information on availability and Open Events, please see The Step Ahead Booklet (536KB - pdf help).
