If you want your child to attend a selective school you will need to complete a registration form and return it directly to your preferred selective school by 7 September 2016.
Even if you complete a registration form, you will still need to complete the council’s application form (CAF1) by 31 October.
These schools have supplementary forms for you to complete and return to them directly.
School staff members can download form SUPP1 if you are applying for a place at your school (this is only relevant for some schools – please see admission policy for the school). You will also need to complete the council’s application form (CAF1).
