Apply for a school place

School admissions in Cambridgeshire

It is your responsibility as a parent / carer to make an application for a school place. School admissions in Cambridgeshire are managed by the School Admissions Team. We deal with applications for places in all school year groups, with the exception of sixth forms and colleges.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) notice

From 5 January in-year allocations will only be processed if your application meets the definition of groups who are eligible to be taught in schools during nationwide lockdown. Applications received prior to this date will be processed although may be delayed as schools are only open for applications which meet the definition of groups who are eligible to be taught in schools.

If you are in receipt of certain benefits your child may be entitled to free school meals. This can save you paying up to £400 a year for school meals. There may be other financial help associated with learning.
