School places deadline

PORTSMOUTH Council have issued a reminder to parents of the need to apply for 2019 secondary school places before midnight on 31st October. 

For those children starting or moving to junior school the deadline is the 15th January.

Councillor Suzy Horton, Cabinet Member for Education, said: ‘I appreciate what a crucial decision this is so I urge parents to apply online before the deadline otherwise there will be a real impact on the chances of children getting a place at their preferred school.’ 

An information booklet can be located on the council’s website and any parent who is unable to apply online should attend the civic offices for assistance.
