In-year applications

An 'in-year' application is any application made outside the normal admissions round (this is when children start primary/infant schools or transfer from primary to secondary school). In-year applications are made to transfer from one school to another during the academic year.

Applications to start primary school or to transfer to secondary school received after 20 July will also be considered as in-year applications.

Applicants can apply direct to any state-funded school. If you live in Trafford you can also apply online. Applications for Trafford community school places are processed by Trafford. In the case of all other schools the application will be passed directly to the school and they will process the application and make an offer where appropriate.

Applications cannot be processed during school holidays.
