Make an in year application

Please read the guidance notes for in-year primary applications or in-year secondary applications before you apply.

Reapply to remain on the waiting list

Waiting lists for Brent schools will be refreshed during the summer break in July 2017 in preparation for the new academic year which starts in September 2017. Waiting lists for the 2016/17 academic year will close on Friday 23 June 2017.

All applicants who want to remain on a waiting list into the new academic year starting in September 2017 must complete a new in-year online application for the 2017/18 academic year.

To ensure that your child remains on the waiting list and in consideration after the end of the academic year you must make a separate 2017/18 In Year application online before Friday 21 July 2017.

In Year applications for 2017/18 will open on Monday 3 July 2017.

We will not contact applicants directly to remind them to reapply. It is the responsibility of the applicant to remember to reapply after 3 July 2017.

This will affect Brent schools whose In Year applications are coordinated by the council.

Changing an existing application

If you have already submitted an in year application for the 2017/18 academic year and you would like to make a change to your address or school preferences, submit your changes online.

The application process 

Due to the high demand for school places in Brent, if we are able to offer you a place at your preferred school, your child must start as soon as possible.

You should only make an application if you will be able to take up the offer of a place immediately.

We operate an 'In Year Fair Access Protocol'. This means that children who do not have a school place are prioritised over children waiting to transfer between schools. Children who are removed from school purely to secure another school place will not be prioritised under the protocol.

If your child has a statement of special educational needs (SEN) or an education, health or care plan you must contact the Special Educational Needs Assessment Service (SENAS) directly. 

For a school place at an independent or private school, you will need to apply directly to the school(s) you are interested in. More information can be obtained from the Independent Schools Council (ISC).

You can choose up to six school preferences. You must list them in the order you want them. If we can offer you more than one school we will make only one offer at the highest-ranked of these school. 

You will need to check whether you need to complete a Supplementary Information Form (SIF) for the school/s you apply for.  All voluntary aided (faith) schools need a SIF which must be returned to the school. Find the SIF for the school you want to apply for.

It will normally take up to 15 working days to process your application and at busy times of year it may take longer. If you have not had a letter advising you of the outcome of your application after 15 working days please email school.admissions@brent.gov.uk for an update. 

If a school that you have requested is not able to offer a place and your child/children are out of school, we will try to offer you a place at the nearest school to your home with a vacancy at the time. This may not be the school nearest to your home. Your child will remain on the waiting lists for your preferred schools until a place can be offered. 

It is our responsibility to provide your child with a suitable school place within a reasonable distance from your home. Please note that this may not be one of your preferred schools.

Appeals

You have the right of appeal for a place at any school you listed on your application. You are strongly advised to accept a place at an alternative school in the meantime. This will ensure that your child will have a school place if your appeal is unsuccessful. The outcome of your appeal will not be affected by accepting a place at another school.

Primary and junior

  • your child lives in Brent and does not currently have a school place
  • you have a school place but wish to transfer to a school in Brent
