How to apply for a school place for September 2024


If your child is 5 years old between 1 September 2024 and 31 August 2025, you need to apply for a school place for them to start school in September 2024.

Head to the Nottinghamshire County Council website where you can "Apply for a School Place"

Make sure you choose 4 schools so that you don't miss out on a place all together.

Don't miss the deadline.  If you do miss it, there is a strict procedure of late applications, and you may not be guaranteed your preferred choice/s of school/s, so do apply early to avoid disappointment.

Contact Nottinghamshire County Council directly if you have any questions: School admissions hub
