Deadline close for secondary school admissions

If you haven’t already applied for a Brighton & Hove secondary school for your child to start in September 2019, now is the time to do so.

The deadline for applications for the city’s community secondary schools, academies and free school for next year is Wednesday 31 October.

All the city's secondary schools are now rated 'good' by Ofsted.

Visit Brighton & Hove City Council’s website at to apply online.

You’ll find all the guidance and advice you need on the city’s secondary catchment areas and admissions process.

It is strongly recommended not to leave your application until the very last minute, as high demand could make it difficult to log in to the online system.

If you need further information please contact the council's school admissions team at or phone 01273 293653.
