Changing your child's school can affect them in many ways and the decision should not be taken without careful thought. Nevertheless, we know that a number of families will need to transfer their child to another school during the academic year, rather than at the usual transfer times. These school moves are called in-year admissions.
Is a move the best step for your child?
Prior to beginning the process to move schools, consider carefully the following:
If you feel there are issues with your child’s current school and wish to seek advice on your rights, do not agree to remove your child from the school’s register before discussing your situation with the admissions service.
If your child has previously been educated outside of the UK and you are therefore unable to obtain this information, we recommend you include a recent school report if possible. Other documents to support your application such as proof of address and faith evidence (where applicable), can also be uploaded.
