Before you apply
Parents or carers must apply for their child to:
- 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
If your child needs a school place in a different year group or at another point in the year, you need to apply to move school.
You must check if your child is eligible for free or post-16 school transport.
Please read the relevant brochure:

SEND school places
Most children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) will have their needs met at a mainstream school or college.
If so, you should continue to apply for a school place online.
If you need to apply for a place at a special school, read about SEND school places.
