The process for changing schools in Warwickshire is explained in the Change of School Leaflet. Please read this thoroughly before submitting your change of school application.

*** Please note: All change of school applications must be accompanied by valid proof of the child’s main address. Applications without accompanying valid proof of address will be delayed.***

Please complete all sections of the Change of School Application Form .

Section B must be completed by the child’s current or most recent school. Failure to include Section B with the application will result in delays. If you are unable to obtain this information, for example if your child has been educated outside of the UK, then we recommend you include a recent school report if possible.
