All applications for a junior or middle school place in September 2020 must be made to your home authority – this is who you pay your council tax to.

If you are unsure if your child lives in Somerset, you can check whether we are your local authority for school admissions here.

If your child is due to start at a junior or middle school in September 2020 you are advised to carefully read the Primary Admissions Guide before making your application. This contains everything you need to know in order to make your school place application including information on the different types of school, Published Admission Numbers and the criteria used to allocate places at schools and academies.
