In Year Applications

An in-year admission is when a child wishes to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time.

Full details of the in-year application process can be found in the Guide to In-Year Admissions. Please take the time to read this carefully before applying.

You must apply directly to the admitting authority for the school you wish to transfer your child to, regardless of where you live.

If you wish to apply for a Community or Voluntary controlled school within RBWM you must apply to us using the relevant application form below.

If you wish to apply for a place at an RBWM Voluntary Aided school, Free school or Academy then you must apply to the school directly. You can download an application form below and return this to the school directly.

If you wish to apply for a non-RBWM school you will need to contact the Local Authority to which the school belongs for information regarding how to apply.
