Primary School applications for September 2019

School applications, including ‘in year’ applications, are managed by Northamptonshire County Council, not the school.

If your child’s birthday is between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019 (meaning they will start school in September 2019), you can make an application for a primary school place from September 2018. The closing date for applications is Monday 14th January 2019 at 5pm.

Parents who live within Northamptonshire are being encouraged to apply online. The system will be available through a link from September 2018 at:
