In Year Admissions/transfers

Parent/carers wishing to request an admission after the offer date of the applicable normal admission round must complete an in-year school admission/transfer application.

Additionally, parents/carers of children who move into the county borough during the course of an academic year, or parents/carers who wish for their child/ren to move to a different school within the county borough, must complete an in-year school admission/transfer application.

Parents/carers who wish to apply for a place at a different school for reasons other than a house move are advised to carefully consider the information available on www.bridgend.gov.uk/schooladmissions. Parents/carers should talk to the headteacher of the pupil's current school about the reasons for a change of school being considered. There is a significant amount of research evidencing that changing schools is disruptive and can have a negative impact on a pupil's attainment. There are many reasons for this. It is particularly important that careful consideration is given to the impacts of moving pupils in Year 9, Year 10 and Year 11, who would have already made particular GCSE choices.

It is not fair and equitable for the local authority to hold places open for children for undue periods of time. Accordingly, the local authority will only accept 'advance' in-year school admission/transfer applications, i.e. for a future admission date, where that requested admission date is in the period up to the end of the following half term and the local authority is satisfied as to the reasons for the advance request.
