Key dates and late applications

Late applications for middle and high schools

If you return your application after 31 October 2019 your application will be considered as ‘Late’ unless exceptional circumstances exist. You should be aware that this will reduce your chance of gaining a place at your preferred school.  Parents returning their application after 31 October 2019 must give a reason why their application was ‘Late’. The Admission Authority will consider your reasons and if they are exceptional will consider your application along with those received on time. Applications received before 10 January 2019 for a good reason or in exceptional circumstances may be considered.  Examples of what may be considered as a good reason or exceptional circumstances include when a family has just moved into the North Tyneside area (proof of ownership or tenancy agreement will be required). Other cases may be considered and each case decided on its own merits. Applications which are not deemed to be exceptional will not be processed until after 1 March 2020.  However, parents will receive an offer of a school place on 1 March 2020 at their catchment area school if a vacancy exists or at the nearest appropriate school.  Most parents who were refused a place last year had made a late application. We do not reserve places for applicants who already have an older child/children attending the preferred school.
