Children transferring to Middle School in September 2023 - How to Apply
Children transfer to middle school at the end of year 4. If your child is already in a Dorset school, information will be sent via your child’s school during the Autumn term before your child transfers. Parents will need to make an application using the required application form online through the local authority in which they reside.
