Apply for a school place
Parent Portal is unavailable
Please be aware that we're currently experiencing technical difficulties on the Parent Portal for applying for school places. We'll remove this message as soon as the issue is resolved. Thanks for your patience.
Follow the steps on this page to apply for a nursery, primary (reception) or secondary (year 7) place for September 2019.
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.
