Bedford parents are being reminded to apply for their child’s secondary or upper school place by 31 October, for the best chance of getting a place at their preferred school.
Bedford Borough Council’s online admissions system is currently open to all parents and carers whose children are due to transfer to a secondary or upper school in September 2022.
These are children in year 6 at primary school or year 8 at a middle school.
The online admission system will close on Sunday 31 October 2021. Any application received after this will be considered late and will reduce the chance of a place at a preferred school.
Cllr James Valentine, Portfolio Holder for Education and Children’s Services said; “Applying for a school place can be both an exciting and nerve-racking time for parents, carers and their children but it’s a quick and easy process that can be done online in a matter of minutes.”
