Parents and carers have until the end of the month to submit their application to secure their child’s place at a Suffolk secondary school for September next year.

The deadline for applications to secure a place at a Suffolk secondary school – which includes high and upper schools – is Wednesday, October 31 2018.

Last year, 93 per cent of applicants received offers for their first preference school and more than 98pc of applicants received an offer for one of their top three preferred schools.

This year, parents and carers will also need to consider the changes to Suffolk’s School Travel Policy, which were agreed by Suffolk County Council’s Cabinet on June 19.

A completed application must be submitted for every child wanting a Year 7 place at a high school or a Year 9 place at an upper school from September 2019.

Information to help parents and carers make their application is available at www.suffolk.gov.uk/admissions
