An in-year admission is when you need to make an application to a school outside of the normal admissions round, at a time when your child should already be attending school.

Normal admission rounds are for primary reception when starting statutory schooling (four years old) for the first time, and for primary to secondary transfer (children currently in year six).

You would normally be making an in year application if you recently moved, arrived from another country, or want to transfer your child to another school. If your child is already in school and you are considering transferring them to another school, you will need to be aware that places are already allocated and availability is limited. 

This is particularly important if your child is in year six of primary school, or in year ten/eleven of secondary school, when a move at this stage of their education is highly discouraged and should only be considered in exceptional circumstances.

UTCs and studio schools

Schools which admit pupils in year 10 are called University Technical Colleges (UTCs) or Studio Schools. UTCs are set up by universities and business and specialise in one or two technical subjects. In years 10 and 11, they offer a similar GCSE curriculum to a typical secondary school, including English and Maths, as well as their specialist subject. Find out more at UT Colleges.

Studio schools are similar to UTCs in that they have employer involvement in the curriculum and focus on developing skills needed for employment, including personal coaching and work experience. They have a similar curriculum to a typical secondary school.

The application process for each school can be found on their website.

If you would like your child's application to be considered under the medical criterion, see medical priority request guidance and application form (PDF).
