School admissions waiting list

Children are added to the school admissions waiting list according to published admission arrangements. If they are added to the waiting list, their position will not be static, which means they can be moved up or down the list.

Schools that maintain their own waiting list

Some schools maintain their own waiting list and are therefore not included in our online waiting list service. You will need to contact the school to find out the waiting list position for your child.
