You use the Enrol application website to apply if your child is:

We recommend that you read our booklets for information about how to apply for a Reception or Junior school place, or for starting Secondary school

Closing dates for applications

The process for applying for a school place will open on the 1st September 2017. The deadlines are below:

  • Secondary applications - 31 October 2017
  • Reception and Junior applications - 15 January 2018

We held talks at the primary schools in Bournemouth throughout June. If you missed the talk at your child's school, you may find this leaflet helpful. 

You may also wish to attend the open evenings held by all Bournemouth secondary schools.  

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) 01202 456223 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.

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.
