In-Year Admissions

‘In-Year’ admission refers to a child who is not starting primary school or secondary school for the first time in September (into reception year or Year 7) but who is transferring from one primary or secondary school to another.  How you submit an application for an in-year school place depends on the school you wish to apply for and what type of school it is.

We are the admission authority for voluntary controlled primary schools in the county and in-year applications for these schools must be submitted to Rutland County Council.  Currently, there is only one voluntary controlled primary school in Rutland which is Oakham C of E Primary School.  The remaining schools, voluntary aided and academy schools, are their own admission authority and applications for these schools must be submitted directly to the school.  When you contact schools to enquire about the availability of places, they must offer you the option of completing and submitting an application form so that you can then receive a written response to your application.  If your child cannot be offered a place at the school the written response must explain the reason why your child cannot be offered a place, it must offer you the right to appeal this decision and offer you the opportunity to put your child's name onto the waiting list for the school.  Please note that a written decline will be required by the Transport Department if you cannot get a place for your child at your nearest school and you want to apply for free transport to the next nearest school that can offer your child a place.

Rutland residents who wish to apply for a place at a school within another Council area should contact the preferred school direct to find out how an application should be submitted. 

To assist parents we produce an 'In-Year Admissions' brochure which explains the process of applying for an in-year school place, advises if home to school transport will be available and offers information about the primary schools and secondary schools in Rutland.  A copy of the In-Year Admissions brochure is available to download.  

If you would prefer to receive a hard copy of the In-Year Admissions brochure or In-Year Application Form in the post, please contact the Admissions Service on 01572 722577 or email to ask for a copy to be posted out to you.
