If you miss the deadline, you will need to make a late application.

Being offered a school place

Southampton Admissions team will make you one offer of a school place after they have processed your application. This will be the highest of your stated preferences that is available.

Offers will be available to view on the Citizen Portal, emailed (if you have opted in for this) and sent by 2nd Class post on these dates:

  • Year R (infant/primary school) places: 18 April 2022
  • Year 3 (junior school) places: 18 April 2022

If the offer is for your first preference school, this is the only notification you will receive.

What if I am unhappy with the school place offered?

You will be given reasons why a place could not be allocated at your chosen schools. Your child will be automatically added to the waiting list of your higher ranked school(s) where your application has been unsuccessful.

When a place becomes available, it will be offered to the child who is at the top of the list at that time. The waiting list is ordered in accordance with each school’s admissions policy.

You also have the right to make a formal appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel. The decision of the Independent Appeal Panel is final and binding on both the admission authority and the applicant. The decision letter will also include details of how to appeal.
