Applications To Open For School Places

Saturday 5th Dec 2020

Admissions for the September 2021 intake of reception pupils to infant/primary schools and Year 3 in junior school in Bridgend county borough will open at 10am on Monday, November 23.

With the council’s online My Account service, it’s never been easier to submit applications.

You can sign up to My Account at Bridgend County Borough Council’s website, select and complete the relevant online form from 10am on Monday, and submit it before the deadline of 4pm on February 12, 2021.

My Account makes it fast, convenient and efficient for parents and guardians to apply for school places. A separate application process is in place for admissions to voluntary aided or church schools, and parents and carers will need to contact them directly to request an application form.

Councillor Charles Smith, Cabinet Member for Education and Regeneration
