Apply for a school place mid-year (school transfer)

Make an application for a school transfer to any Swansea school where Reception and Year 7 admissions DO NOT apply.

It is important to note that if you are applying for a place for your child to transfer from nursery to reception in September 2017 or primary to secondary (year 7) in September 2017 then this information does not apply to you and you should follow the link to the online admission application.

Before you decide to request a transfer to another school, for reasons other than a house move you should consider your options very carefully and discuss your reasons and any issues with the headteacher of your child's current school. A change of school does not always resolve a problem and in some circumstances a move can create difficulties particularly where a pupil is mid-way through examination studies ie during Years 10 and 11. 

If you move into the area during the school year or you want to transfer your child to another school during the school year you may wish to arrange to visit the proposed school to discuss the move and options available. If you decide to proceed with the transfer you will need to complete an application form and return it to the The School and Governor Team

The application form can be accessed in the following ways: 

Application forms are processed in date order and can take up to 15 working days to be processed. If there is room in the appropriate year group, your child will be given a place. If the year group is full, ie they have admitted up to their admission number (AN) then you will be contacted in writing and told that the Local Authority is unable to give your child a place. You will be offered a place in the next nearest school with room and you will be given the option to appeal against the decision not to award a place at the chosen school. Details of how to appeal will be sent with the letter. You must submit your appeal in writing and it will be dealt with as soon as possible.

If you are not offered a place because the school you apply for is full then your child's name will be placed on the waiting list and kept on the list for the remainder of the academic year. If any places become available while your child's name is on the waiting list then the place will be offered to children using the oversubscription criteria. If you have any questions regarding the admissions process please contact the The School and Governor Team in the Civic Centre (01792 636550) or alternatively via e-mail to:  midyearadmissions@swansea.gov.uk
