School waiting lists
You will be added to school waiting lists if you:
- don’t get a place at any of the schools you applied for
- have been offered a place at a lower preference school listed on your application and still want a place at a higher preference school
You can ask to have your child’s name added to school waiting lists if you:
- still want a place at a lower ranked school on your application
- add your child’s name to a school you didn’t list on your application
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your child’s name to the waiting list.
How long we keep names on waiting lists
Names are only held up to July 21. You will need to reapply for your child’s school place
Your child’s position on the waiting list is based on the admissions priority criteria
Time spent on a waiting list isn’t taken into account and your child’s position can go down as well as up.
