Bulk Admissions

Starting Primary, Junior or Secondary School for the first time is often referred to as Bulk Admissions. The Admissions & Transport team deal with the arrangements for all bulk admissions and bulk transfer applications and as the local authority is responsible for all community
and voluntary controlled schools the team will also process in year applications for these types of schools.

We can provide advice about schools, information about your right of appeal, if the school you prefer is full, or information about school transport.

Are we your Home LA?

Schools are not able to make an offer of a school place when it is an application for a bulk transfer group. All requests for places must be made to your home Local Authority who will deal with your request as part of the co-ordinated admission arrangements.
