If your child is attending a local authority lower school that will not be converting to a primary school and is due to transfer to middle school in September 2019, you will receive an information sheet from your child's current school during the Autumn term 2018.
To help you with this process we have produced a School transfer booklet (PDF).
We strongly recommend that you apply for a school place using the online facility, which will be available to you at the start of the admissions process.
You will be able to download a transfer to middle school application form (PDF).
If you are applying for a school place and you are not resident within the Bedford Borough area you should contact your own local authority for an application form or you can apply online to your local authority.
Open days / evenings
Details can be found in the School transfer booklet (please see link above).
Closing dates for applications
15 January 2019.
Children attending a lower school will also be able to apply for a Year 5 place at a primary school in accordance with the provisions of this scheme for In Year admissions.
National Offer Day - 16 April 2019
If you have applied online, you will receive an email to let you know the outcome of your application. In addition, as the results will be posted to the online system overnight, you can log into your account to access the result of your application. If you have not applied online, we will post a letter to you on this day. Those of you who have not been offered a place at your first preference school will also be sent a copy of this information sheet which provides you with information about the number of applications and places offered at each school, and how to lodge an appeal.
