This is when children start at a school at any time other than the normal round – either in another year group or in a normal round year group that has already started. Applications for in-year admissions can be made at any time although places will not generally be allocated further in advance than eight school weeks. You can read about this in the in-year admissions booklet (available soon).
You can apply for in-year admission during current academic year now. Applications for in-year admissions can be made at any time. Offers will be for admission as soon as possible where a child is new to an area or generally for the beginning of the next term or half term for children moving from one local school to another.
Applications are considered up to eight school weeks in advance to allow a reasonable time for moves to take place and, if necessary, for school admission appeals to scheduled and heard. There is an exception for children of UK service personnel: places can be offered up to 16 weeks in advance.
If you are interested in an in-year admission to a school outside Devon you must apply to the school or the local authority there. This includes Plymouth and Torbay.
