Secondary in-year applications - current school year

How to apply

All secondary schools in Coventry are part of the Coventry co-ordinated admissions scheme. This, however, does not include Independent fee-paying schools (please contact these schools direct) and Special Educational Needs Schools which are for children who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (details of how to apply)

Applicants for Blue Coat and Seva School may need to complete a supplementary information form to enable school governors to fully consider their application against faith-based oversubscription criteria.

The supplementary forms can also be obtained directly from the schools.

Please return completed supplementary forms directly to the school.

Transferring between Coventry Secondary schools

If you are looking to transfer from a Coventry school to another Coventry school please complete the in-year transfer form, which is available from the main office of your child’s current school. Once you have completed Part 1 and Part 2 of the form, you will need to return it to your child’s current school for Part 3 to be completed. The Headteacher will arrange to discuss the reasons for transfer with you.

If your child currently attends Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School please follow the application process below.
