Applying for a secondary school place for the school year 2019/2020
If your child was born between 1st September 2007 and 31st August 2008 (current Yr 6) you will need to apply for a school place by 31st October 2018.
What do I need to do to apply for a school place?
Check out the guide to applying for schools (down-loadable above). The guide contains details on how and when to apply, information on each school and their open days, along with their admissions policy and over-subscription criteria. Given the mix of different types of school from church schools, foundation schools, academies, Free Schools and community secondaries, the admissions policy could be different for each school you put as a preference so it's important to ensure you check this carefully.
Some schools require supplementary forms to be completed as well as the common application form. Make sure you check if this applies to the school(s) you are interested in.
Visit the schools. All schools hold open days, detailed in the booklet.
Look at the school's prospectus and its website which are useful sources of information.
You can name up to three school preferences. We advise you to name more than one school.
Make sure you apply on time. The deadline is 31st October 2018
It's easiest to apply on line at www.bristol.gov.uk/school admissions
using the on line application form.
