Applying to Perins

Who to contact and when to apply

When your child is moving from primary to secondary school, you will be sent an application form (usually via your child’s primary school in the autumn term of Year 6) and applications are dealt with centrally by the Hampshire County Council Children’s Services Department.

If your child attends a private school, a school outside Hampshire, or you move into the area after the autumn term, you should apply directly to Hampshire Children’s Services for advice and an application form. Although Perins is an academy school, there are no additional forms for you to complete.

Admissions for September 2018

If you are seeking a place to start in Year 7 in September 2018 please download our Admissions Policy below.

If you wish to apply for a school place to start at any other time or other year groups (an “in-year” application), please contact the Admissions Administrator at Perins to ascertain if space is available. We also encourage you to visit the school and talk with one of our pastoral team.

Before starting with us, we normally invite a new student to spend a day at the school. This helps your child to become familiar with the school and we ask them to take a number of assessments in key subjects, to ensure that we can place them in the appropriate classes to make good progress with us.

To make an application in-year please download an application form below. Further advice is also available from Hampshire Children’s Services.

Published Admission Numbers (PAN)

Please note that Perins governors have agreed to increase the PAN for year 2018/19 Year 7 intake to 230.  This decision was influenced by the demand for places at Perins over the last two years.

Waiting lists will be established on 15th March 2018 after the late application deadline.  Children will be automatically added to the waiting list of any school named as a higher preference than the school allocated.  Please note that Hampshire County Council manage all admissions for Year 7 entry until 31st August 2018.
