Secondary Transfer 2023
You must apply for a secondary school place for your child to start year 7 at secondary school. You will need to do this when your child is in year 6 at primary school.
Applications for transfer to secondary school in September 2023 opened on Thursday 1 September and will close at midnight on Monday 31 October 2022. Apply online via the KCC website at www.kent.gov.uk/ola.
If you provided an email address on your application we will email you on Wednesday 1 March 2023 after 4pm to tell you which school you have been offered.
You can also log in to view your offer online on Wednesday 1 March 2023.
Offer emails will be sent to the email address provided on your application.
You can apply for up to 4 schools, putting them in order of preference. It's in your best interests to list 4 schools. Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.
To apply to a school outside of Kent, name the school in your application along with your other preferences. Your application details will be passed on to the relevant local authority for processing.
Most children with special educational needs and disabilities can attend mainstream schools, whether or not they have an education health and care (EHC) plan.
If your child has an EHC plan their school placement will be arranged by the SEN Team.
