The Primary and Infant to Junior application systems are NOW OPEN – late applications may be at a disadvantage. Please ensure you apply before the closing date of midnight on the 15th January, 2015.

You are strongly advised to read The First Step booklet image - PDF icon (2.34MB - 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 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.
