In Year Applications

An “In Year Admission” is when an admission falls outside the main intake to the school in the Autumn Term. There are times during the academic year, when a student might leave the school because the family moves away. If this student’s year group is not already oversubscribed at the time a place could be freed up by the move. If the year group is already oversubscribed then the place would be offered to the next person on the waiting list.
