Process for registering a military child in school

As soon as you know where you will be living please contact the school you wish to send your child to and ask to register them. Don’t forget to inform them you are an Armed Forces family. You may wish to arrange a visit beforehand to meet with the Headteacher.

If you don’t yet have a postcode and are awaiting allocation of housing, you are still able to register your child for school. You will be required to complete a placing request.
