Schools, education & childcare Apply for a reception class place for September 2018

How to apply

Apply here if:

  • your child is starting school for the first time in September 2018; and
  • you live in Manchester.

If you live outside Manchester and need a place here you should still apply to your current council. We can help children with special educational needs to get the right school place. To find out more see children with special educational needs first.

If you want a place in an independent or private school, contact the school directly.

Follow these steps to apply for a school place:

  1. Find your nearest primary schools
  2. See how primary school places are decided
  3. Apply for a place

If you need a place to start now or for a different year go apply for a primary school place for now.
