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, as well as to arrange a tour of the school.

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

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

Further information about In-Year Admissions can be found in the document below.
