Council issues reminder of school application deadlines

By Barrie Hudson - 16 October 2023


A reminder has been issued for parents of children set to begin primary, junior or secondary school next year.

Swindon Borough Council says it is time to kick start the application process, as the deadline for secondary school applications is 31 October and that for primary and junior school applications is 15 January 2024.

A council spokesperson said: "You can apply for three schools, with the option to prioritise your most preferred school as your first choice. 

"We highly recommend utilising all three preferences for the best outcome."

Applications can be submitted via the council's website.

The local authority has also organised drop-in sessions for parents seeking guidance and support, and all are welcome to attend.

They will be held on Tuesday, 24 October and Tuesday, 9 January, with both sessions running from 10am to 4pm at the Central Library.
