Transfer between schools

If your child is in Years 2-7 of a primary school or Years 9-12 and you wish to move him / her to another primary school or another post primary school you will need to make a formal application using the AP1 form.

Applying to the Exceptional Circumstances Body

You can make an application to the Exceptional Circumstances Body (ECB) in situations where your child has not been admitted to the school you consider that, for exceptional reasons, he/she must attend. This facility is available only in respect of admissions to post-primary schools (Years 8 to 12).

There is no deadline for applications to the ECB.

Information can be found on the nidirect web site.
