I have previously posted a similar thread but didn't get any response, so try again ! Fly out 17/11/10 and have secured temp accommodation until 14/1/11 Whats the situation with regard school applications? 1)Can we apply whilst being still in the UK? 2)Can we apply whilst in temp accommodation/? 3) Do you need to be in a long term rental or own a property before you can apply for a particular school? Also what year would the children (Boy 9 Girl 14)enrol? Any feedback / clarification would be much appreciated Regards Darren & Joanne

A school can tell you if they have places for both in catchment and out of catchment applications. For instance if you called my school from England I would tell you that if you were to arrive in my suburb now then I would have to take you if you are in boundary, even if the accommodation was temporary. However some schools will want to see a permanent lease agreement. If you wanted to send your kids to my school and you lived out of boundary and arrived today I could only take applications in a few different year groups. Out of catchments are full in some of our classes. I know that one particular school in the northern suburbs insists you remove your kids if you move out of boundary, our school doesn't. If your child turns 15 this year (2010) then I think they would currently be in year 10 ( I am not as familiar with high school ages). Depending on birthdates again with your 9 year old. Birthday between 1/7/00 and 30/6/01 then they would enter year 4. Birthday between 1/7/01 and 30/6/02 then they would enter year 3. Hope that helps. PM if you need any further information.

Don't suppose you booked through a bloke called Alan?? My sister lives in Wesham. I work for the Dept of Education and deal with enrolments all the time so fire away if you need any specific information.

Have used Alan twice now and would recommend him. In fact he has provided such a good service I have offered to buy him a case of beer. I am doing a Biathlon this Sunday at Saltaire leisure Centre so I will try and visit whilst in the area. Have also passed on 10 of his cards to friends and family........small world!!
