School waiting lists

How school waiting lists work

You will be added to school waiting lists if you:

  • don’t get a place at any of the schools you applied for
  • have been offered a place at a lower preference school listed on your application and still want a place at a higher preference school

You can ask to have your child’s name added to school waiting lists if you:

  • still want a place at a lower ranked school on your application
  • add your child’s name to a school you didn’t list on your application

How long we keep names on waiting lists:

  • secondary transfer and reception waiting list names are held until the end of December
  • in-year waiting list names are held until the end of July

Your child’s position on the list can go down as well as up, time spent on a waiting list isn’t taken into account.
