Less than a week to apply for school places in Surrey

This Is Local London: Fun and games: But school places are serious business Fun and games: But school places are serious business

There is less than a week to the deadline for next year’s school places.

Surrey County Council, which handles applications for state schools, closes the application cycle for the September 2014 infant, junior and primary schools on Wednesday, January 15.

Parents who miss the deadline will be dealt with after all applications submitted by the deadline have been processed, and their chances of getting their child into one of their preferred schools will be reduced.

To apply, visit surreycc.gov.uk/admissions or to obtain a paper application, email schoolbooklets@surreycc.gov.uk.

Hopefully you will have more luck than i did getting my chilldren into local schools in Ewell. My experience was even when you got a place over half the intake was from eastern europe so their childrens primary langauge was not English.

Tell me how that is beneficial to teaching our kids and how local familes born in the area should not get places at the schools they want because of things like this. Disgracful.

Surrey County Council need another question on the form that says, how long have you lived in the area and that should go towards place acceptance.
