Apply for a school place

Follow the steps on this page to apply for a nursery, primary (reception) or secondary (year 7) place for September 2018.

1. Understand the process

Stockport's School Admissions processes and policies are very easy to understand and in our experience; parents who take the time to read and understand our policies leave the process satisfied with the outcome of their application.

Common mistakes can be avoided by simply taking the time to read the information in our policy document, on our website and in our parent booklet. For information on how school places are allocated visit our admissions explained page.
