Moving from infant to junior school

Moving from Infant to Junior School 2023

If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 and attends Year 2 of a separate infant school, you need to apply for a Junior School place for admission in September 2023.

Click on the Apply Online link below to begin your application.  You will need to register first if you do not already have an account. Alternatively, you can telephone the Admissions Team to request a paper Common Application Form The closing date for receipt of applications is 15 January 2023.

Any application received after the closing date will be considered as a late application.  You will be less likely to secure a place at your preferred school if your application is late.

You should only use this process to apply for a Year 3 place at a separate junior school for admission in September 2023.

We will not consider applications for admission to Year 3 of primary or junior & infant school until after 1st May 2023. If you wish to apply for a Primary or Junior & Infant School for Year 3, you should submit a separate application after 1 May 2023.  If your child is in Year 2 at a separate infant school, you are advised to apply for a junior school place in the meantime.

Please contact the Admissions Team on 01709 823777 for further information and advice if required. We are happy to talk through any queries you have.
