Parents of children born between 1/9/2017 to 31/8/2018 must apply for a school place for September 2022.

You must apply for a school place even if:

  • your preferred school is not in Luton
  • your preferred school is a faith school, a foundation school, an academy or a free school
  • your child is attending a pre-school or early years class attached to your preferred school

It is really important that you read our how to apply for a school place for September 2022 guide before making your application.

Making an application using the Education Portal

You must register to the online system even if you have used the online application system in previous years.

Once you have completed the registration, you will be able to access the system using the log in details you have used this year for any future online applications you wish to make.

You will be asked to upload proof of your address to the online system.

In addition, if you apply using our online system and specify a catholic primary school, you must also upload a completed copy of the school’s supplementary form and upload your child’s original Baptismal Certificate or Certificate of Reception. You must read the checklist before submitting your application.

All documents must also be provided by 15 January 2022

Applications received after 15 January 2022 will be treated as late. Late applications will be processed in May/June 2022.
