Reception places

You can enrol your child in a reception class, at either an infant or primary school, in the September following the child’s 4th birthday.

The closing date for reception place applications for children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018 was 19 November 2021.
If you've already applied, we'll let you know the outcome by 19 April 2022.

Applying after the closing date

Late applications are dealt with after the on-time submissions, if you're applying after the closing date, we recommend naming more than one preference as available places may have already been granted at your preferred school.

Apply for a  reception place after the closing date

If you're applying after the closing date, your application will be processed after all the on-time requests have been dealt with. This means your preferred school may be full by the time we process your application and, for this reason, we recommend that you name more than one preference when applying.

Late applications will be considered together, regardless of date received, against the oversubscription criteria detailed in the Denbighshire Schools guide.

If you make any amendments to an on-time application after the closing date, we will consider this as a new application which will replace anything previously received and will be recorded as late.
