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 2014 and 31 August 2015 was 23 November 2018.
If you've already applied, we'll let you know the outcome by 16 April 2019.

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.

You must only complete this application if your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015.

If you are trying to move your child from one school to another, please complete the school transfer application instead.

More information

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 2019-20 guide.
