Primary school admissions – apply now!

Deadline day is fast approaching for school place applications for children due to start primary school in Brighton & Hove next September.

Applications for the city’s primary, infant and junior schools and free school for September must be submitted by Wednesday 15 January at 3pm.

Failure to meet the deadline could mean that your child does not get offered a place at one of your preferred schools - even if you have another child already at the school..

Visit www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/schooladmissions to apply online.

You’ll find all the guidance and advice you need, including information on home to school distances and finding your nearest schools.

Parents who do not wish to apply online should contact the council’s school admissions team at schooladmissions@brighton-hove.gov.uk or on (01273) 293653 for a hard copy of the application pack.

Parents who feel they need extra help with the admissions process – perhaps because English is not their first language or they have only just moved to the city – can phone (01273) 290355 for impartial support.
