National Offer Day for Middle and High Schools

National Offer Day for year 5 of a Middle School, year 7 of a High School, and year 9 in Monkseaton High School or Whitley Bay High School to start in September 2024 is the 1 March 2023.

If you applied online and asked to be notified by email, you will receive an email on this day telling you the school your child has been allocated. 

You can also log on to your account on the Portal on the 1 March to find out what the response is to your application.

If you applied on a paper form, a letter will be posted to you by second class on 1 March 2023 which will tell you the school your child has been allocated.  Please do not contact us until you have received the letter. We will not be able to give you any information by email or telephone until you have received the letter.


If your child has not been allocated a school/s you applied for, and you want to appeal against this decision, please go to the Education Appeals page, where you can fill in your appeal online.  

If your child has been allocated a place at a school you have not applied for this is because the Local Authority have to offer you a school, and the place allocated has been based on the nearest school to where you live with a place available. If you don’t want to accept this place and want to be considered for another school, you must complete an application form to be considered after the 20th March. Common Application forms are available to download. You cannot apply online as the system is closed.

If you want to accept the place you child has been offered, you can do this by accepting on the Portal if you applied online, email us if you are unable to do this or you have received an acceptance slip with a letter to let us know, and we can do that for you. 

If you want to go on the waiting list for a school you applied for but were not offered, please email us and we can do this for you.

If you do not want to accept this place and would like to apply for another school, please fill in a paper Common Application form. These are available to print out.

The Admissions Team are here to help. This is a very busy time so please bear with us and we will deal with your enquiry as quickly as we can.
