In-Year Transfers Years 7 to 11
Once a child has started secondary school, parents and carers can make an application for The Willink at any time. This is known as an in-year transfer application. The Willink is part of West Berkshire's Admissions' In-Year Co-ordination Scheme. This means that all in-year transfer applications for Years 7 to 11 should be made directly to West Berkshire's Admissions Department, regardless of where a child lives. Details on this process, including the application form itself, can be found on the in-year places page in the school admissions section of West Berkshire's website via the following link:
