Applying for a place in Year 3 (at a junior school)

If your child attends Year 2 of an infant school, you will need to make an application for admission to Year 3 in a junior school, to start in September 2021.

Hampshire residents can apply online. After registering with a username and password, and supplying basic details about yourself and your child, you can name up to three preferred schools, giving reasons as appropriate.

If you do not wish to apply online, a Hampshire common application form is available from schools or the County Admissions Team and should be returned to a Hampshire school or to the address on the form.

It is very important to apply on-time in order that your application is not disadvantaged.

This may mean that they are allocated a place at a school some distance
