Due to the current public health situation, the closure of schools, and the requirement to prioritise Primary and Secondary allocations in accordance with national timescales, unfortunately we are not able to process ‘In Year’ applications at this time. 

Exceptional circumstances will be considered for vulnerable families, children of key workers and families who have moved into the area covered by Bedford Borough Council and a child is without a school place.

If you move into the area during the school year or you wish to change your child's school, you will need to complete an in-year application form (Word, 3.3MB).

Before completing the application form please read the In-Year Admissions Guidance Notes (PDF) which explains the arrangements for applying for a school place.

If you are applying on religious grounds, please remember to complete the Confirmation of Religious Affiliation Form, which is part of the In-Year application form. 

The In-Year Application Form is also available from schools or from the School Admissions Service.

If you need any further advice or help in completing any of the application forms you can contact us at: or by calling us on 01234 718120.

Find an Ofsted inspection report on the school you want to apply for.

You can read how Ofsted has changed the way it inspects and reports on schools.
