Applications open for Hampshire residents on Monday 14 September 2020. You can apply online at www.hants.gov.uk/admissions. You must apply to Hampshire County Council even if you wish to apply for schools in another local authority.
If you do not live in Hampshire (including Portsmouth and Southampton) you must apply through your home local authority.
Using the online system (Education Online Portal)
If you have used the Education Online Portal before, you will be able to log in using the same e-mail address and password. Please check your details are up-to-date in the ‘My Account’ section of the portal before starting your school application.
If you have not used the online portal before, you will need to register by clicking on the ‘Register’ button and following the onscreen instructions. You will be sent an e-mail from the system containing a link to the log in screen. You will then be able to log in using your e-mail address and password.
The deadline for applications
The deadline for applications is midnight on Saturday 31 October 2020.
It is very important that you submit your application by this date. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered until after all on-time applications have been processed, which means late applicants are less likely to be offered a place at one of their preferred schools.
