Although it is usual for children to attend their local catchment area school, parents/carers have the right to request that their children be placed in a different secondary school. This is called a Placing Request. Education authorities have a duty to grant placing requests wherever possible. We will try to grant your request, provided there are places at the school which you choose. Where the demand for places exceeds the number of available places in a secondary school it is not always possbleto grant all such placing requests.
To keep visit to Dundee House to a minimum, placing requests for any school should be made online.
If you cannot make the request online you will need to visit Dundee House. Dundee House has moved to an appointment only system. Appointments can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, address, contact number, preferred appointment date/time and brief summary of enquiry or contact Customer Services on 01382 433129 to make an appointment.
All placing requests should be made between Monday 7 December 2020 and Monday 1 February 2021. Any requests made after this date will still be considered, but it is possible that places in certain schools may no longer be available.
