Applications for primary and secondary school places open in September

Herefordshire Council’s school admissions application processes for primary and secondary school places open this month.

If you’re applying for a primary school place, you can apply online now.  The process is for applications to all primary school reception classes across Herefordshire for children who turn five between September 2019 and August 2020 (those born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015).

Please note that you must still apply for a reception class place, even if you already have a place in the nursery associated with your preferred school.

The closing date for all primary school reception class applications is midnight on Tuesday 15 January 2019.

If you’re applying for a secondary school place, you can apply online now.  The process is for children turning 12 years old between September 2019 and August 2020, who will be moving from year 6 into year 7.

The closing date for all secondary school applications is midnight on Wednesday 31 October 2018.

For parents or carers who are unable to apply online, a paper application form can be requested from the council’s school admissions team on 01432 260925 / 260926 or email schooladmissions@herefordshire.gov.uk or dskyrme@herefordshire.gov.uk

Please note that late applications could result in not being offered a place in a preferred school.
