In-year Admissions

If you are considering transferring your child to our school, please contact the school office for information on availability and waiting lists and to arrange a tour of the school.

You must complete an In-Year Application Form if you are applying for a place outside the September Admissions process. This form must be completed and returned directly to the Secondary Phase office, which can be downloaded below. Please note that if your child is offered a place at Saint George’s, you must provide your child’s birth certificate and proof of address (two for you and one for your child).

We do not recommend students transferring from other secondary schools after the beginning of Year 9 when GCSE courses commence.
