The deadline for returning the primary acceptance/refusal email is 1 May 2023. If you have been offered a Kent school but live outside Kent, you may also need to inform your own local authority.

If your child is at primary, junior or secondary school and you want to move them to a different school, you need to apply. This is called an in-year admission.
There is no guarantee that your preferred school/s will be able to offer your child a place. You should not remove your child from their current school before you have an offer of a place at another school.
Parents are advised to consider transport implications before approaching any school for a place. Transport assistance is only provided where parents apply to schools in line with our transport criteria. We are unable to advise parents of the availability of school places outside of our boundaries. If you live near to the border, your nearest school may be in another local authority’s area. Please ensure you check with neighbouring local authorities before applying for school places, as this may impact your child’s eligibility for free school transport.
If you are looking to move schools in year 10 and 11, the curriculum is often already set. Therefore, before making an application it is important that you explore the curriculum offer at your preferred school, as it may not align with the curriculum or exam awarding bodies at your previous school.
Please ensure you have read KCC’s Admissions privacy notice before you apply for a school place.
Complete the In Year Admissions Form (PDF, 303.3 KB) and send it to us.
You need to fill in a separate form for each child and for each school you want to apply to.
