What happens next

You don't need to confirm the place with us. However, the school or academy may contact you to confirm the place, please respond if they contact you direct.

If the offer is not one of your preferred schools or academies this is because other applicants had higher priority within the determined admission arrangements.

Help with school costs

Once you know which school your child will go to, you can check whether they will be eligible for free school meals or free travel to school.
