In-year applications

Parents or carers living within the Bradford District who would like their child to move to a different school should first contact their child’s current school to discuss the reasons for the transfer.

If you are new to Bradford or decide you have no alternative but to request a transfer, please read the following information before completing an application form.

It is important that you read the guidance notes carefully and complete the form as fully as possible.

If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan or Statement of Special Educational Needs please do not complete an application form. Please contact the SEN Team on 01274 435750 for advice.

The following schools manage their own applications and should be contacted directly; please do not include them on this application form:

  • All Catholic Schools 
  • Idle CE Primary School 
  • Shipley CE Primary School 

If any of the schools you wish to apply for are in a different local authority, please contact the Admissions Team in that area to see if they will accept an application directly.

Please follow the links on this page for further information on the different types of schools and their admission policies (Guide for parents, school priority admission area maps and school policies and supplementary information forms).

If you are unsure which schools are near your house, you can enter your postcode into this School Finder.
