School Admissions Team

Emergency arrangements for changing school applications in light of Covid-19

Due to the current situation with Covid-19 and the uncertainty around schools reopening we are unable to accept applications that are requesting a change of school if your child already has a school place in Cornwall within reasonable travelling distance* and/or you are not moving house. 

In addition we will not be able to accept applications for children that are currently registered for Elective Home Education in Cornwall unless your child is currently in Reception, Year 1 or Year 10. If you need advice please contact the EHE Service: 01872 323400.

When we know more about timescales for schools reopening we will update this web page with guidance on applications being accepted.

For eligible applications please note that there may be a delay in processing your application due to the current situation. We will contact you as soon as possible and would be grateful for your patience.  In the meantime we can provide advice if you believe you should be able to access the provision for vulnerable children or children of keyworkers.

*as defined in the Co-ordinated In-year Admissions Scheme


Finding the right school place for your child is an important concern as a parent/carer. The admissions pages aim to provide you with all the information you need in order to apply for a school place. If you need further advice, please use the contact details on this page. 

Please note that although a number of private organisations provide information on the availability of school places, you should always contact the School Admissions Team for reliable and up to date information.
