School waiting lists

If we’re unable to offer you a place at one of your preferred schools, we will ask you if you want your child’s name added to the waiting list (where such a list exists).

How the waiting list works

  • the waiting list will include children new to the area who weren’t able to make an application on time.
  • the waiting list is held in accordance with the admission criteria of the school, not in order of applications received. Visit our School Admission Arrangements webpage for further information on the admission criteria. 

This means that your child’s position can move down as well as up following the addition of any applications that may have a higher priority. All waiting lists are cleared at the end of each academic year, and no names are carried forward into the next academic year.
