    School Admissions

    Central Bedfordshire Council provide the service for School Admissions.

    Children normally transfer at 13+ (end of Year 8) to the catchment area upper school. All upper schools have a 6th form and pupils may remain at the school up to the age of 18 or 19 years.

    Parents have a right to express a preference for a school which is not within the catchment area, but places can only be offered if there is space available. If the number of requests for places at a school exceeds the number of places available, places will be allocated in accordance with the Admissions Criteria for that school.

    If you would like any information about admissions to school or the transfer process, you can contact the School Admissions Service by letter, fax or e-mail or click on the following link:
