In Year Admissions

Management of the applications list for in-year entries

In-Year applications follow the same procedure and you need to complete the application form on Swindon Borough Council (SBC) website, who will allocate places using the over subscription criteria detailed in this policy when required. On receipt of the application form, SBC will check if a place is available in the relevant year group. Where a place is available the child will be offered the place.  If a place is not available, SBC will place the child’s name on the waiting list. Applicant’s details will only be available to the applicant, Swindon Borough Council, the school office and where legally required by an official body.
