Waiting lists are kept until the end of the current academic year. If you would like your child to stay on the waiting list for another academic year, you must contact us by 31 July 2022.

This depends on when a place becomes available in that year group for your preferred school. 

We will contact you if a place becomes available and your child is top of the waiting list.
