Applying for Secondary Schools
Parents will receive a package containing letters addressed to them containing the UID’s (unique identifying numbers) enabling parents to make application for their secondary school(s) via the online Admissions Application facility which opens on 1st September.
The system opens on 1st September and closes on 31st October. It is very important that parents apply within this timescale as late applications may be disadvantaged where schools are oversubscribed. The letter contains links to Open Events at Secondary Schools, transport information, supplementary forms where necessary and designated area maps. The actual application facility will be open at
www.devon.gov.uk/admissionsonline, parents may express up to three preferences ranked in priority order. Any queries should be directed in the first instance to the Customer Service Centre on 0345 155 1019.
Parents may still complete a hard copy form of course and this can be obtained from the Customer Service Centre (pdf) but applying online is encouraged. The facility now operates on smartphones and other devices and applicants will receive email confirmation of receipt, as well as electronic notification on Allocation Day, Thursday 1st March 2018, of the outcome.
