Admission portal opensMonday 4th October 2021

It is your responsibility to submit an application and apply on time. If you do not submit an application you will not receive a school offer. Your child will not be given a school place automatically.

 

Offer day for on time applications is 1st March 2022.

 

Applications received after the closing date will be considered as LATE. Late applications will not be processed until after all on time applications received have been offered their school places on the statutory offer day.

 

How to apply

The easiest way to apply is on-line. To do this you will need to register on the Swansea Council School Admissions website. You will need a valid email address. The system is compatible for use with a number of electronic devices, including mobile phones. The application process is very important and the Information for Parents 2022/2023 details how you should make an application, how places are allocated and the local authority’s oversubscription criteria should a school receive more applications than there are places available.

Important Information

  • Changes to Welsh Medium school catchment areas were implemented in September 2021 and the catchment school for your home address may have changed. To check the designated Welsh Medium catchment area school for your home address, please contact Admissions@swansea.gov.uk

 

  • It is your responsibility to submit an application and apply on time. We cannot offer your child a place until you make your application. Your child will not be given a school place automatically.

 

  • We will try and meet a parental preference however, please be aware that:-

- Living in the catchment area does not guarantee your child a place at the school.

- Having a sibling of statutory school age already attending the school does not guarantee your child a place at the school.

- Attending the nursery class in a primary school does not give your child automatic right of entry into the Reception class and it does not guarantee your child a place at the school.

- Attending a partner primary school does not guarantee your child a place at the associated secondary school.

 

  • The application allows you to select more than one school preference. Please consider using all your preferences, you have three, as this will mean you will have more chance of being allocated a school place you would like. Please also consider using your catchment school as a preference.

 

  • If you are living outside of the City and County of Swansea (i.e. you pay your council tax to a different local authority) we strongly advise that you also make an application with your own local authority, as in the event we are unable to offer your child a place at a Swansea school(s) that you have made a preference for, we will not offer your child an alternative Swansea school.

 

  • Alternatively, if you reside within the City and County of Swansea and wish to apply for a school in another local authority, please contact the relevant local authority who will be able to advise you of the their admission procedures. You can also apply for a place in a Swansea school in the event your out of county preference is not offered.

 

  • If you have moved home recently, please ensure you have updated your address with your child’s current school.
