How are places allocated?
Hampshire Admissions will give your child’s details to us.
All on time applications will be considered at the same time. We will not be told which preference number you are or which other schools you have applied for. Please refer to the relevant Local Authority’s primary booklet or website for details on how places are offered for out of borough preferences.
- If only one preferred school can offer, this is the place you will be offered.
If more than one of your preferred schools can offer a place, the offer from the school highest on your application will be allocated to you. The lower available offers become ‘no longer required’.
- Any vacant places will be allocated to Hampshire children living within a reasonable travel distance who have not received an offer from any of their preferred schools
- On request your child will be put on the waiting lists of any Hampshire school you listed higher than the school offered. Waiting list requests for out borough schools will be passed on to the relevant Local Authority.
