What happens if my preferred school or academy is full
If your preferred school or academy is full, there are other options available. You can:
- appeal for any of the schools/academies where you have been unsuccessful
- check with the school/academy to see if they hold a waiting list and ask for your child to be put on that list. Please be aware that waiting lists for in year applications for community and voluntary controlled schools will not be held from 1 September 2013 and beyond.
- contact the school regularly or contact the Council to see if any vacancies have become available at the schools where you were unsuccessful
- contact the Council again to see which other schools/academies have vacancies and make further applications to these schools/academies
Where to find help
In the event that you are unsuccessful in obtaining any of your preferences please contact the School Admissions team
