Applying for a secondary school place

Application Timetable

The Wiltshire County Council website has details of the schedule for applying for a secondary school place. Parents and carers need to apply to Wilshire County for a secondary school place, not directly to the school. We have an approved intake number of 270 for entry into Year 7 in September 2021.

In Year Admissions

Visits to the school

‘Show rounds’ are currently running outside of school hours from 3:45pm-4:30pm with Sarah Edwards, our Admissions Officer (normally they run from 9:30am-10:15am). They are a fantastic opportunity to get an informal tour of the school’s facilities and a chance to ask any questions. We encourage parents/carers and their child/ren to attend. A place can be booked via reception at mailin@malmesbury.wilts.sch.uk.

Transport

Wiltshire Council Passenger Transport arrange for free or assisted transport for school children who live within catchment.  You will need to apply for transport for your child.

The Education Transport Team are available on 0300 456 0100.  Alternatively, you can email educationtransport@wiltshire.gov.uk
