Apply for a school place

Applying for nursery places

Our Admissions Support and Advice Team are currently processing nursery applications for the January 2019 intake. Parents wishing to apply for nursery places for April early intake or September 2019 will be able to do so from Thursday 15 November 2018.

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.
