School Places 2019


Central Beds Council is urging people who applied for places in their schools this year to check the offer they have been given.

The Council say that if you made an application for your child to start school or transfer to middle school in September, the outcome can now be checked.

For pupils starting a lower or primary school in September:

3,461 pupils applied for a place
95 per cent have been granted their first preference.
90 per cent of applications were made online
For pupils transferring to a middle school in September:

2,319 pupils applied to transfer
93 per cent were offered their first preference
95 per cent of applications were made online

Anyone who applied online should have now received an email with their offer - -check your spam folders if you have not seen it yet. Alternatively, all online applicants can log into their account to view the outcome of their application.

If you applied by paper application form, a decision letter will be posted to you.

If you wish to change the place your child has been offered, you will need to submit a change of preference form by Tuesday, 30 April. These will then be considered – along with any late applications – on:

Wednesday, 22 May, for middle school
Monday, 3 June, for starting school
