Changing Schools 

If you have moved address, just arrived in Nottingham, or if you want your child to change schools you can do this by clicking the School Admissions button above to apply.

School Admissions aim to process applications within 4 weeks of being received. However, when dealing with high volumes of applications, allocating school places can take longer especially in areas where there are very few in-year vacancies. During school holidays decisions can be delayed due to schools being closed.
