Apply for a school place

National Offer Day for secondary schools is Monday 2 March 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update:

As the office is now closed, all new applications must be emailed to the school admissions team at admissions@wiltshire.gov.uk

If you are unable to scan your application, please take a photograph of each page and attach the images to your email. You do not need to complete section 4 of the application form.

If you are a critical or key worker please state this in your email and attach proof of your position. View guidance on the GOV.UK website to determine if you are classed as a critical or key worker.

As all schools are now closed, the 20 days timescale for processing will not apply. Applications will be processed as soon as possible.

Should you have any further admissions queries, please email us using the above email address, or contact us on 01225 713010.

If you have submitted an online application for a secondary school place before the national deadline of 31 October 2019, you will be able to view the outcome of your application online from Monday 2 March 2020 after 7.30am. Please note, decision(s) will not be available before then. You will need your username and password so you can view the outcome of your application.

All online applicants will also be sent a letter confirming the outcome of their application. Letters will be posted out second class on Monday 2 March 2020, so applicants should receive their letters within a couple of days. No decision on applications will be conveyed over the telephone.

Details on how to appeal for any school which your child has been refused a place at, as well as details on how to add your child's name to the waiting list, will be contained within the outcome letter. Find out more about appeals.

Only one offer of a school place for each child can be held at any one time. This means that if you submit a new application for your child, your new preferences will automatically supersede any preferences named on your earlier application. If any of your new preferences are agreed, the place previously offered will automatically be withdrawn.
