In Year Admissions in Portishead

Most of the schools in Portishead are now academies they have become their own admissions authority.  Each school is now responsible for processing In Year transfer applications for their own school and informing the applicant of the outcome and their rights.  As such any In Year transfer application for any of the Portishead schools has to be lodged directly with the school and not with North Somerset Council.  


It is a requirement that all own admissions authority schools notify the council for all applicants that they have either offered a place to or refused a place to.  If an applicant is refused then North Somerset Council will track the application to ensure that a school place is identified and offered.


To apply for an In-Year place at Trinity please complete the In Year Application Form available on this website.
