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.

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.

We also encourage you to visit the school – tours before an “in-year” application can be booked online here.
