ADMISSIONS TO GLENFIELD

You may be applying for a school space at Glenfield for one of two reasons;

Your child already attends another school and you would like to move them to Glenfield.
You can apply for a school space by contacting the school and requesting an In-Year Admission form which you should complete and return to Glenfield. Once we have received the form it will be processed by the School Admission Officer, Mrs Glenton, and she will write to you with a decision about your child's application; this will either be a letter of offer or a letter to advise you that we are not able to provide a school space for your child at the moment.

Your child is due to start school next September as part of Year R.
Applying for a school space for children due to start school in September must be done via the Southampton City Council website, applications are open between September-mid January of THE YEAR BEFORE your child starts school. Applications are only online via http://www.southampton.gov.uk/schools-learning/find-school/apply-school/default.aspx.
