Moving Schools - In Year Transfer


An in-year admission could be:

  • a move between Peterborough schools, or
  • a move to a Peterborough school from a school in a different county or country

To apply for a place at a school outside of Peterborough, you will need to apply to the local authority which the new school is located.

You can submit an application for a school place up to 30 school days before the intended start date. When we have received a complete application, along with the appropriate documentary evidence, (proof of your Peterborough address and Student Details form where your child is moving from one Peterborough School to another) we process applications following the timetable found below.

Please note: Your reason for applying or your circumstances may affect how you apply. Please ensure you read through the information on this page to get the best experience of the In-Year Admissions process.
