Timetable for parents who are applying for a place in Year 7 in September 2020.


7 October 2019

Any parent with a child eligible to start in Year 7 in September 2020 may begin the process of applying for a place. The local authority will write to all parents who have a child registered in a year 6 class in a Swansea primary school inviting them to apply for a year 7 place for their child.

29 November 2019

Deadline for parents to apply and complete the application form online. You should complete one application only with your first, second and third choice of schools clearly stated. Places are allocated in accordance with the over subscription criteria. There is no guarantee of a catchment place.

Policy on late applications

Applications submitted after the published closing date (29 November 2019) will not be considered until after all on time applications received have been allocated and offered their places on the statutory offer day. Late applications will be processed in date order of receipt and the Local Authority will only be able to allocate a place in your chosen school if places are still available. This means that you may not be allocated a place at the school of your choice even if you live in the school's catchment area or move into the catchment area after 29 November 2019. Appeals for late applications will be held after the appeals for on time applications have been held.

2 March 2020

Parents who have applied on time will be notified about whether or not they have been allocated a place at the school of their choice and if not, where there is a place available.

3 March - 20 March 2020

Parents who have applied on time can appeal against an unsuccessful application by requesting an appeal form from the School and Governor Team.
