What happens to my information?

Denbighshire County Council collects your personal information to provide you with services relevant to your request. This information will not be shared with any other third party unless the law requires us to do so.

For further information about how we handle personal information, please view our online privacy notice.

  • Please read these important notes and tick to confirm that you understand and agree before you complete this application to transfer to another school.

    • Please discuss any issues or concerns you have with your child's current headteacher before you apply for a place at another school.

    • This application form can only be completed by the legal parent, carer or guardian of the child.

    • Where there is shared parental responsibility, both parents must be in agreement about the preferences listed in this application. It is the parents' responsibility to come to this agreement.

    • We may request proof of address.

    • A school place granted on the basis of fraudulent information may be withdrawn.

    • A place in the Nursery class at a preferred school does NOT guarantee a place in Reception class - the application process starts afresh.

    • Free school transport is normally only provided to the nearest suitable school if it is more than 2 miles from the home address for Reception - Year 6 applications, or more than 3 miles from the home address for Year 7 - Year 11 applications.

    • You may express a preference for English or Welsh medium education, or faith-based education.

    • If you would like to apply for school places for more than one child, you must submit one application form for each child.

    • In completing this online application form, you agree to provide an email address, which we will use to acknowledge receipt of your application.

    • If you are a non-EU resident, you must provide a photocopy of your visa before we can consider any application for a school place. There is no option to attach electronic copies to the online application form, so please download and complete a paper application form.

  • I confirm that I understand and agree with the points above.
