Primary and Secondary Admissions – September 2020
The admissions process for school place applications in September 2020 is under way and the website will be live for parents/carers to make their on-line application from Monday 16 September.
For children due to start school for the first time or transfer to a junior or middle school the closing date for applications is 15th January 2019 and the national offer day is 16 April 2020.
The primary and secondary admission guides for the 2020 admissions process can be found on our website www.somerset.gov.uk/admissions from the 16th September. Parent/carers are advised to read the guide thoroughly before making an online application.
In previous years the Admissions and Entitlements Team have written to every parent/carer of children due to start or transfer school explaining how to apply, key dates and where to find further information. Due to budgetary constraints we will no longer be writing individually to parents. Information can be found on our website www.somerset.gov.uk/admissions and we make use of Facebook, twitter, local press etc as usual to raise awareness. Chaser texts and/or letters will still be sent if we have not received an application by a certain date prior to the deadline.
