Our phone lines will remain open Monday–Thursday, 9am–1pm.

In-year applications

We will continue to process in-year applications and make offers in line with our current processes.

There may be some delays in processing in-year applications, especially if we are faced with school closures.

Please do not make unnecessary telephone calls or send emails about proofs that you have submitted in support of your application. If we require any additional information we will contact you.

We will continue to add late applications and make any changes to applications.

Waiting list positions should still be available from 1 April 2020.
