Changing school mid-year

The Admissions Team at AfC is now operating a call back service only. Priority will be given to calls where the information is not available on the website or in the Guide to In Year Admissions.

Full details of the in-year application process can be found in the Guide to In-Year Admissions. Please take the time to read this carefully to make sure you are applying to the appropriate admissions authority when submitting your application.

You can apply for an in-year transfer if you would like your child to change schools or join a school outside the normal application round.  This normally applies if:

  • You have moved into the area and do not currently have a school place for your child;
  • You have moved within the area and want to transfer your child to a closer school;
  • You have recently moved to the UK from abroad;
  • You wish to transfer your child from their current school to another school for any other reason;

We will normally write to you within 10 to 14 school days via email to confirm the outcome of your application. If you wish to apply for a non-Royal Borough School you must contact the local authority for which the school belongs for information about how to apply.

Applications for Community Schools

We will need the following information from you when applying:

  • Names of preferred school(s);
  • Your child's name and date of birth;
  • Your contact details and email address;

Depending on your responses you may be required to attach additional documents.  For example:

  • Proof of address;
  • Proof of sale and completion on new property;
  • Statement of Special Educational Needs or an Education, Health and Care Plan;
  • If you are moving from overseas you must provide evidence that you are entitled to remain in the UK; We would accept a copy of the visas for you and your child.
