Admissions

Applying for a place in Reception

By law a child does not have to start school until the term following their fifth birthday however most children start school in the September following their fourth birthday. Applications are managed to a national timetable and co-ordinated between local authorities across England. This means that parents must apply to the local authority where they live, even if applying for schools in another area. If you live in Swindon you can find all the information here.

The closing date for applications is 15 January 2022.

If your child attends Liden Academy Preschool you must still make a application for a place in Reception.

At the end of Year 6, children transfer to secondary school. Applications for a place at secondary school must be made through Swindon Borough Council in the autumn term of Year 6. Your child will bring home a form or you can apply online.

Transfer arrangements for our Year 6 pupils going to secondary school are sent to parents during the Spring Term prior to their children starting in September.

Parents can make an application for Swindon school places at any time in the year. Known as an ‘In Year Application’ they are processed every 30 school days. Information on making an In Year Application can be found here
