Once you have completed a late application form you can:

  • Return your form by post.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we strongly advise you to submit late application forms by email.

Missing the application deadline could significantly affect your chance of getting the place you want. Please view important dates in the application process​ to make sure you do not miss out. 

Late applications will not be considered in the initial round of allocations. Many schools will be full after the first round so it is important to submit your application on time. Following the first round of allocations, late applications will be considered together with anyone on the waiting list.
