Apply for a Junior School Place

We normally make arrangements for admission to junior schools in the Autumn Term before the date of transfer. Application packs are distributed to the Infant Schools during the Autumn Term.

The headteacher of your child's infant schools will let you know which junior school the children would normally attend, although you can choose another school if you wish.

Powys Local Authority has changed the age of admission for pupils attending its schools so that from 1 September 2017 there will be only one school intake in each school year - at the beginning of the Autumn Term after a child has attained their 4th birthday.

Having a place at a nursery or pre-school class does not guarantee a place in the main school at age 4. You will still need to apply for a place in the main school. If you don't apply for a place, and your preferred school is full, preference will be given to those who have applied.

The Junior School Admission Round is for Powys Learners born between 01/09/2012 - 31/08/2013.  The closing date for the admission round is Friday, 16th December 2019.

To apply for a junior school place for a learner with a date of birth that does not fall within the above dates of birth, you will be required to complete an 'In year school admission request form'. [247KB]  You can also request a form by contacting or by phoning 01597 826477.

Having a place in an infant school does not guarantee a place in the 'paired' junior school and the criteria for school admissions will apply if the demand exceeds the number of places available
