October 31 Deadline For 2014 Secondary School Applications

Parents are reminded that they have just two weeks left to apply for a secondary school place for their child for September 2014.

Parents in Cambridgeshire who have a child born between 1 September 2002 and 31 August 2003 must submit an application for a secondary school place to Cambridgeshire County Council by 31 October 2013.

Parents of children who are transferring from middle school to upper school must also apply for a school place by the same date - 31 October 2013.

The process, which opened on 12 September 2013, can be completed online at or by returning a paper form, which can be obtained from any Cambridgeshire primary school. The form must be returned to the Admissions Team at the County Council.

The completed applications must be received by the Admissions Team by the national closing date, midnight on 31 October 2013.

If parents submit their applications late - or do not make an application - there is a risk that their child will not be offered a place at one of their preferred schools, including their catchment school. Other children’s applications - those received by the deadline - will be processed ahead of theirs.
