* Please note that for applications received between 1 June to 20 July for Primary applications only, we will endeavour to process by the end of August but this may not always be possible due to school holidays as we may not be able to contact schools to discuss the offer of a place. In many cases it is the school that would make the final decision.

Applications received between 26 June and 1 September may not be processed until after the start of school in September 2018 as we will not be able to consult with secondary schools during the summer break.
