Before you apply
Parents or carers can apply for a mid-year place at any time.
There is no guarantee that a place will be available at your preferred school.
You do not need to apply for a mid-year place if your child will:
- start primary or infant school (reception year)
- start Year 3 at junior school
- start Year 7 at secondary school
- start Year 10 at Lincoln University Technical College
When starting school in these years there is a separate process to apply for a school place.
You must check if your child is eligible for free or post-16 school transport.
Please read the relevant guide:
You can use our directory to find out more about a school:
If your child is unhappy, discuss this with your child’s headteacher first. Only make a midyear application if you are sure the issue cannot be resolved.
If your child has special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and you need further advice, email [email protected] or call 0800 195 1635.
If you are thinking of moving schools because your child is at risk of being excluded, email [email protected]
