School Admissions Timetable


Please select the type of school your child will be attending to get to the relevant timetable.

The six officers in the school admissions team deal with more than 8000 applications each year. While we can provide information about the admissions process and are happy to answer specific queries from parents/carers, please do not telephone the school admissions team to ask about the progress of your application, as we will not be able to provide this information until all applications have been considered. In addition, this may cause delays in the admissions process.

Please be aware that there are no facilities for School Admissions Team members to meet with parents/carers face to face. If you need help to fill in the form, or wish to talk through the admissions process in more detail, please contact the School Preference Service.

At busy times the school admissions team may not be able to provide detailed information immediately.

Telephone opening hours are:

  • 8.30am - 5pm Monday​
  • 8.30am - 5pm Tuesday
  • 1pm - 5pm Wednesday
  • 8.30am - 5pm Thursday
  • 8.30am - 5pm Friday

However, during the June-July period when we are exceptionally busy we will operate reduced telephone opening hours of 8.30am - 1pm Monday-Friday.
