In Year Transfers

For children applying for a place at Clifford at any other time during the academic year,  an in-year transfer form has to be completed.  Parents can download the form from the above Councils' websites. 

It is always a good idea to telephone the school first to ascertain whether there is space in the year your child would be joining.

For an In year transfer from Clifford to another school, you will need to apply to either the school you wish your child to go to, or your local authority
