Transfer between schools

Our guide will help you if you wish to apply for a place or transfer your child to another primary or post primary school or to apply in-the current school year

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.

Admissions Helpdesk

If additional information is required or any difficulty is experienced, parents can contact the admissions helpdesk via the email addresses below:

Monday – Thursday (8am – 8pm)
and Friday (8am - 5pm)

Do you know that your choice and order of preferences could impact on your child’s eligibility for transport assistance?
