School Transfer to a Junior School
Please use Admissions Online to register and apply
From 12 September 2019 up to 15 January 2020 you can make your online transfer application for a Junior place.
Click here to Access our Admissions Online website - Please remember that you need to live in Bath and North East Somerset to use this online facility unless you are living abroad. Visas may be requested in appropriate cases where the child is a Non-EAA resident.
If you are a resident of Bath and North East Somerset you can also apply by completing a paper Junior Application Form which you can return by post or email. The Junior Application Form can be downloaded and printed from the link on this page and will be available from 12 September 2019. Alternatively you can also telephone 01225 394312 if you would prefer a form to be sent to you.
Applications must be made to the Local Authority in which you live even if you want to be considered for a place at a school situated within a different Local Authority area.
Most children who are already in school have a Unique Identification Number (UID). Providing you live in Bath & North East Somerset and your child currently attends a maintained Infant school in Bath & North East Somerset, you will receive a letter in September 2019. The letter contains your child's UID and information about the transfer process from their current school. The UID number can then be used to make an application on line as this makes the application process easier for you. You can still make an application with the UID number. Please be aware that for address purposes, where we have had no recent updates to a child's record, we reserve the right to check other systems including Council Tax records to confirm the current address.
We produce a Primary Information Booklet for parents which can be viewed from the link on this page from 12 September 2019. Please note that we no longer print hard copies of this booklet. The booklet contains essential information on how to make an application along with a number of useful contact points should you need further information. In deciding which schools you wish to give as your preferences, please read the admissions criteria for each school. This will tell you which category your application would be considered under if the school were to be oversubscribed.
One section of the booklet explains how places at all the schools within the Authority have been allocated over the past 3 years. This may help you to decide what chance you have of gaining a place should you apply.
Please remember that if you are making a paper application you must still return your completed application form by 15 January 2020 for your child to be considered for a Junior school place.
