Applying to Perins

Who to contact and when to apply

When your child is moving from primary to secondary school, you will be sent details on how to apply online (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 Admissions Team.

Please see our catchment area here and our prospectus here.

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.

If you wish to make a late application for Year 7 please visit

At Perins we understand that deciding on a secondary school can be a difficult process.  Therefore, we usually hold several Open Days throughout the year to help with your decision.  Unfortunately our Open Days in 2020 were postponed, please see here for further information.

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 – tours before an “in-year” application can be booked online here.
