School applications

Parents in Cambridgeshire who have a child born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 are reminded that they must submit an application for their child to start school in September 2013.

The process can be completed online at or by returning a paper form, which can be obtained from any primary school and returned to the Admissions Team at Cambridgeshire County Council.

The completed form must be received by the Admissions Team by the close of business on the national closing date, 15 January 2013.

If parents submit their applications late - or do not make an application - there is a risk that their child will not offered a place at one of their preferred schools, including their catchment school, as other children’s applications (those received by the deadline) will be processed ahead of theirs.
