Applying for school places at other times of the year

If you live in Stockport, all applications for school places must be made to Stockport Council’s Admissions Support and Advice Team, even if the school you are applying for is outside Stockport.   The Admissions Support and Advice Team will liaise with other Local Authorities to find out whether or not a place is available.

If the application is linked to a change of address you must provide documentary evidence, this could be in the form of a solicitor’s letter, Council Tax or tenancy agreement.   The Council reserves the right to seek further information if necessary.   For more information on school admissions please refer to the Stockport Council website.  (Click here)
