Do you mean you're moving to UK?
Which area? In England, you cannot apply for school until you have an address. There's no papers requiring notarizing, unlike France. You will need to prove address to school, usually rent agreement and a bill (e.g. electricity or gas, or council tax) or bank statement.

Some LEAs will take an application from abroad, but you will still need a provable address here in the U.K. - so you need to have a rental agreed here I'm afraid.

What years are they going into? Places for Yr7 have recently been allocated, so you will be looking at in year places for all years, which may mean different schools.

Places can't be held either (with the exception of a yr 7 place allocated to a current year 6). Once a place is given, you would be expected to take it up within around 4 weeks at most - so you couldn't get a place now for September for any secondary year other than year 7.

Thanks for your answers.
My children will be in year 9 and year10.
I think they are going to go in a 1 french school for this year.But fo the older one i don't think she could success in an english school if she enters in year 11.It will be difficult fo her.In the french school they prepare for the GCSE too.
best regards.
