Primary, Junior and Secondary Allocations for September 2018

The processes to apply for your child's 2018 reception, junior or secondary school place opens on 1 September 2017. More information about the process will be available on this page closer to this date. 

If your child attends a Bournemouth primary school and is due to move up to secondary school in September 2018, an information evening was held at the school during June 2017. If you were unable to attend, you may find our leaflet helpful. 

If you’ve just moved to Bournemouth

If you have just moved to Bournemouth or are planning to in the near future, contact the Children's Information Service (CIS) for advice. Please note, school places can’t normally be reserved more than half a term in advance.

In some cases, we need proof of your address. It may save time later if you provide this to us with your application. 

If you have moved to Bournemouth from overseas, you will also need to present your original passports and visas (if applicable) for all members of the family before we can offer a place. This is so that we know you are here in Bournemouth ready to take up any place offered.

To apply for a place, you can complete the application form and return it to the Admissions Services Team. We’re happy to answer any questions you have. Just call the Children's Information Service on 01202 456223. 

Applying for a school transfer during the academic year

If your child already attends a school in Bournemouth but you wish to move them to another within the Borough, then you will need to complete an application form and submit it to the Admissions Services Team.

We operate a co-ordinated admissions process with the schools in Bournemouth, so there is one application and one offer per pupil.
