In year admissions and school transfers

In Year School Admissions are when a child moves from one school to another during the academic year.  Within Sefton there are two different types of In Year Admission:

  1. Due to a house move (A1 application)
  2. A school transfer for reasons other than a house move (T1 application)

The information below provides you with all the information needed for you to make an In Year Admission application. Please read this information BEFORE contacting the In Year Admissions Team.

School to School Transfers 

If you wish your child to transfer from one school to a Sefton school during the school year, for reasons other than a house move, please read the School Transfers Guide before you complete the In Year School Transfer application form (T1). Both documents can be found below.

The T1 form is and editable PDF and should be saved to your device. Editable PDF forms can be filled in by using the Adobe Acrobat READER PDF app which you can download for free (many devices already have this app installed).

We recommend you use the tools on your device to rename the form to include your child’s name.

Once you have completed Section A you must send the whole form to the child’s current school for the school to complete Section B. You can send the completed PDF to a school via an email attachment, sharing a link through the cloud or printing the form to hand in a paper version.
