School admissions / transfers

Apply -schoolplace

Admission to school is not an automatic process and it is a parent/guardian’s responsibility to submit an application by the specified closing date.

Applications are welcomed for pupils born on or before 31st August 2015. No application will be processed until after the relevant closing date.

There is a limit on the number of pupils that can be admitted into a school in any one year group. Once that limit is reached no further pupils will be admitted.

The headteacher or any other school representative cannot offer a place, only the Local Authority can legally admit a child into Community and Voluntary Controlled schools. Voluntary Aided Schools have their own admissions arrangements so please contact these schools directly.

When processing applications it is the home address that is considered and NOT the school/nursery your child previously/currently attends. Feeder schools do not operate in Carmarthenshire. To assist you, catchment area maps can be found under Education and Schools on i-Local.

We look forward to welcoming your son or daughter to one of our schools and wish them every success in their studies.

You must apply for your child's place online.
