In Year Admissions.***
**As we have now reached the end of the Summer term 2020, we cannot guarantee that any further In Year admissions that are submitted will have an outcome before the schools break up for the summer holidays. We will continue to send applications to schools over the summer, but it is likely that many schools will not be informing us of the allocation of spaces until early September.

You can only apply for schools in Devon County Council's area. You cannot use this system to apply for in year transfers to schools in another authority or for the following schools:

  • Bideford College
  • Brayford Academy
  • High Bickington Primary Academy
  • Pilton Bluecoat Church of England Academy
  • Sparkwell All Saints Primary School
  • Umberleigh Primary Academy

You will need to contact these schools directly for an in year transfer.
