Secondary Transfer 2020

National Allocation Day – 2nd March 2020

Depending on the method used in applying for a school place, you will receive either an email during the afternoon of 2nd March 2020 or a letter will be sent on 2nd March from the Local Authority notifying you of the school place your child has been allocated for September 2020.
Your allocation will be available through your online account later in the evening of the 2nd March 2020.

If your application to this school has been successful, you will receive a letter from the school confirming the offer of the place and registration forms. We would ask that you accept or decline your place as soon as possible or by 16th March at the latest.
If you have not been successful in your application to this school, letters will be sent out on 2nd March with information regarding your child's position on the continuing interest list and also information about how to appeal. We would request that you do not call the school before you receive this letter.

Continuing Interest

Following National Allocation Day, all applicants who listed St Clement Danes School higher than the school they have been allocated will automatically be rolled onto the continuing interest list. Please inform the school or the Local Authority if you do not wish to remain on the list. You will not remain on this schools continuing interest list if you have been allocated a school you ranked higher than this school.

1st round of continuing interest

Parents will be contacted on 26th March, by the Local Authority, if their child has been allocated a different school.

2nd (and final) round of continuing interest

Parents will be contacted on 30th April, by the Local Authority, if their child has been allocated a different school.

From 4th May

Places will be reallocated from the continuing interest list as vacancies occur.

The continuing interest list will continue until the end of the Autumn term 2020 at which time if applicants wish to remain on the list they will need to complete an in-year application form.  

It is worth noting that the school receive few withdrawals at this stage and it is therefore important that you make alternative arrangements for your child by accepting a place at another secondary school.  There is no statistical analysis, from one year to the next, as to how many places will be accepted or declined by applicants. 

Appeals

All unsuccessful applicants are entitled to appeal.
If you wish to appeal against the Governors’ decision not to award you a place you will need to either

Hertfordshire Local Authority are organising all of St Clement Danes appeals. From their information you will note that the Authority will require your completed Appeal Form to be returned to them by 4pm on 3rd April 2020. It is possible for you to remain on the Continuing Interest list without lodging an appeal.
