Please note that currently we do not have any spaces, but when spaces do become available we will offer a space to the next person on the waiting list working our way down.
In-Year application – In-Year Application Form
Supplementary Information Form (SIF) – Orchard School SIF
If you have applied to the school already your application will move up to the next year group automatically, so you do not need to apply again. If a space becomes available in any year group we will go down our waiting list to offer spaces and you will be contacted (please ensure contact details are always updated), so you do not need to contact the school every academic year.
If you have made a recent application to the school please allow at least two to three weeks before contacting the school regarding your position on the waiting list, as distance measurements are carried out by the Local Authority before the application is ranked.
Please ensure that if your address has changed that you inform the school office or complete the letter below and return it to the school office so that we can update our system. Evidence will be required to confirm your new address (accepted proofs are highlighted in the letter). Also if your contact numbers change please make sure the school is informed so that we can update our records.
Change of address: Address Update letter
