Primary school admissions – don’t miss the deadline

Parents – don’t miss the deadline for school place applications for children due to start primary school in Brighton & Hove in September 2023.

Applications for the city’s primary, infant and junior schools for next September must be submitted by the end of Sunday 15 January.

Visit the council’s website at 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 of children currently at infant schools that have linked junior schools should note that their children will not automatically be given a place at their linked school.

Parents still need to apply for the linked junior school if they want their child to go there.

If you feel you need help or advice with school place applications please email or phone 01273 293 653.
