We understand that there will be disappointment if your child has not been offered their first preference school, and our next priority will be to reallocate any places that have not been accepted.

Decline your reception or junior school offer

The first round of re-offers will start to be made from 26 April 2021 – we will contact you. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any information on waiting list positions while we work on these, as the position changes daily. Please be assured that we will contact you if you are reallocated a place.

Schools waiting list

The Admissions Service operate waiting lists for school places. If you have not been offered your first preference school, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list for your higher preference schools.

Places will be reallocated from 26 April 2021. Please do not contact the Admissions Service about a waiting list place before this date as we will not be able to give you any information on waiting list priority.

Please note that a child’s position on a waiting list can move up and down as offers are being reallocated after 26 April 2021.

Lodging an appeal

You can appeal for any higher preference school for which you have been refused a place.

Even if you plan to appeal, we advise you to accept the offer you have been made so that your child has a secured place for September 2021. Doing so will not affect any appeal you lodge, nor your place on any waiting lists.
