Hello, Have just seen your message? Did you get it sorted? We were on the waiting list even living IN the catchment area, but did get offered a place quite quickly. I believe you can go on the waiting list in your situation. Hope you got it sorted.
We've just moved back to uk from NZ and found a potential rental property in Horsell but can't move in until 6 Sep. I have an 8 yr old needing a place in year 4. We are currently living with family in Dorset but he has not been to school there yet. Do you know if I can apply to Surrey council now for a place, or do I have to wait until I've actually moved in? I will have a tenancy agreement but not a council tax no. Would I be granted a place from beginning of school term even though its a few days before we move into that address? It's in the Goldsworth school catchment area, about 300m, any chance of getting in? I have to finalise the offer tomorrow so because its a Saturday I can't ring the council for answers. Please help!
