School waiting lists

How to check your child's waiting list position

Please complete the enquiry form and select the waiting list option.

 

How school waiting lists work

You will be added to school waiting lists if you:

  • don’t get a place at any of the schools you applied for
  • have been offered a place at a lower preference school listed on your application and still want a place at a higher preference school

You can ask to have your child’s name added to school waiting lists if you:

  • still want a place at a lower ranked school on your application
  • add your child’s name to a school you didn’t list on your application

Complete our enquiries form  to add your child’s name to the waiting list.

How long we keep names on waiting lists:

  • secondary transfer and reception waiting list names are held until the end of December
  • in-year waiting list names are held until the end of July

Your child’s position on the list can go down as well as up, time spent on a waiting list isn’t taken into account.
