Admissions: How To Apply

Headteachers Welcome


The application process depends on which year-group you are applying to:

Timetable for 2024 Year 7 Intake:

ApplicaTion Deadline: 31 October 2023
  • Deadline for on-time applications via the Local Authority's application process. (Applications submitted after this date will be treated as late applications).
National Offer Day: 1 March 2024
  • Online applicants will receive an email from the Local Authority during the evening, informing them of the result of their application.
  • Letters are also sent out on this day, by first class post.
  • If your child did not qualify for a place at one or more of your higher preference schools, your letter will include information about the Waiting List process and what to do next.
  • You can find out your position on school Waiting Lists by contacting the Local Authority Admissions Team.
  • The Local Authority administers the Turing House Waiting List in three bands (as described in the notes section of our Admissions Policy). You may be wait-listed in more than one band, so you can ask the admissions team for your position in each.
Acceptance Deadline: 15 March 2024
  • This is the date by which parents must accept or decline their initial offer.
  • A further wave of offers is usually sent out a few weeks after this date, to applicants who remain on the Waiting List for one or more higher preference schools.
  • Information about your Waiting List position can be requested from the Local Authority's admissions team from Tuesday 2 April 2024 onwards.
  • Each wave of offers results in parents giving up previously accepted offers, so there are usually Waiting List movements between March and September.
Appeals Deadline: 15th April 2024
Appeals HEard: May/June 2024
  • All appeals  received by the 15th April deadline will be heard on weekdays within this timeframe (excluding half term).
  • Appellants must submit any additional evidence by 5 working days before their appeal hearing.
  • Decision letters will be sent out within 5 school days after the appeal hearing (whenever possible).
  • Appeals lodged after 15th April will be heard after all appeals that were received by the appeals deadline.
