Buckinghamshire is currently experiencing a heatwave

Please see our advice on how to stay safe in the heat.

Apply for a secondary school place

You need to apply for a secondary school place with us if:

  • You live in Buckinghamshire and
  • Your child will be moving to secondary school in September 2019

Apply for a Secondary School place

Please see what to do if you have missed the application deadline.

Once you have made your application you will need to submit the following:

  • A scan or photo of your Council Tax bill for this year, or
  • A scan or photo of a utility bill dated within the last three months, showing usage

Submit your address evidence 

If you need to provide evidence of your circumstances if you are applying for a 'looked after child' or have exceptional medical or social reasons for attending a particular school please use the admissions contact form.

What you need to know:

  • You can read the information on Moving up to secondary school before making your application
  • You must make your application to your home Local Authority, even if you wish to apply for a school in another area. Find your local council
  • You can list up to six preferences. Putting just one school doesn’t give you a better chance of getting in
  • List the schools in the order you would like them, not the order you think you might be offered them
  • It is best to include your catchment school, even if you put it lower on your application than other schools
  • There is no guarantee of a place at your catchment school
  • Having a sibling at the school does not guarantee admission but make sure you include your other child’s details on your application
  • Putting the same school more than once will not give you any better chance of being offered it
  • Remember to think about how your child will travel to school each day, and to consider the transport rules
  • Choose an email address to register with that you will have access to on 1 March 2019 when you will receive your school offer
  • There is further information provided for What to do if you are moving house.
