Brighton & Hove City Council coordinate admissions for most of the schools in the city so you will need to apply for these schools via the School Admissions Team.
You can apply either:
You can apply for one, 2 or 3 schools of preference on your application, but we'll only allocate one school place which will be your highest-ranked preference possible.
Make sure you like your first preference more than your second preference and your second preference more than your third.
Putting a second or third preference will not affect the likelihood of being offered your first preference school so only apply for schools at which you would like to accept a place.
When to apply to change your child’s school
You can apply for a school place up to half a term before the place is needed. We won’t usually process applications earlier than this except for:
- applicants wanting a school place from the beginning of the autumn term, you can apply after Easter
- Crown Servants or members of the Armed Services being relocated to the area
