How to request an In-Year transfer to a Wolverhampton school

If you want to change schools after the start of the school year, you will need to complete an In-year Transfer form. Download the pdf icon School Admissions & Transfers – In-Year Transfer Form [184kb].

When completing the form please take note of the information detailed below together with the guidance notes on the form. Although the transfer form is available to download if you are a new arrival to the UK you will still be required to attend the Civic Centre in Wolverhampton with the relevant documentation.

Alternatively if you have changed address and are requesting a transfer to another Wolverhampton school then we require proof of your new address. The application form details acceptable proof.
