Transfer to upper school

If your child is attending a local authority middle school and is due to transfer to upper school in September 2020, you will receive an information sheet from your child's current school during the Autumn term 2019.

It is important you read the School transfer booklet (PDF) first, where you can find information about open days/evenings.

Apply online

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.

If you are unable to access the online system, you can download the Transfer to Upper school application form (PDF).

If you live in Bedford Borough you must apply through us. If we're not your council you can find out who is on GOV.UK. 

Open days / evenings

Details can be found in the School transfer booklet (PDF).

Closing date for applications

31 October 2019

National offer day 2 March 2020

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 about the number of applications and places offered at each school, and how to lodge an appeal.
