Mid Year Applications

If your child is already at secondary school and you wish to transfer him/her to The Thomas Lord Audley School, we recommend in the first instance you contact the school about place availability. There is no guarantee of a place at The Thomas Lord Audley School.

You should then complete the Mid-Year Secondary School Application Form and submit it to the school.  Please remember, moving schools is a serious step to take. You should not remove your child from his/her current school before you have an offer of another school place.
