Parents of children resident outside Herefordshire

If you are not resident in Herefordshire then you should obtain admission details from your home local authority (LA), even if your preferences include schools within Herefordshire. (The 'home' LA is defined as the local authority relevant to the child's home address).

If you wish to apply for a place at any Herefordshire school, you must complete an application provided by your 'home' LA. The 'home' LA will ensure that the application details are passed onto Herefordshire LA for consideration in the allocation of school places.
