Applying for a Place

Admission to Year 7 (September of next Academic Year)

The application process for admissions into Year 7 is co-ordinated by Cambridgeshire Local Authority (LA), which acts on behalf of the governing body to offer places at the School. Parents should apply online at or submit a Cambridgeshire Application Form, available from their child’s primary school or from the LA Admissions Team, no later than the national closing date on 31st October. The LA will issue offer letters on the National Offer Date (1st March or first working day after). The Admissions Team will handle late applications (those submitted after the national closing date).

Waiting Lists

Where the number of students exceeds the Published Admission Number in any year group, an in-year waiting list will be maintained. If you are on the list, the school will notify you when a place becomes available. See the school’s Admissions Policy, below, for more information on how waiting lists are administered.

Please note that for in-year applications a child's details will be held on a reserve list for two terms, including the term of application. After this time the school should be contacted if applicants wish their child(ren) to remain on the reserve list. Names held on the reserve list will not be carried over to a new school year. 


Information regarding the process to appeal a decision to refuse a place at Hinchingbrooke School can be found in the School’s Admissions Policy; see below.
