Student Admissions

Robert May’s School is its own admissions authority, working closely with the school admissions team at Hampshire County Council.

You can find our Admissions Policies on the Policies page. Please refer to the policy for the academic year for which you are applying. For example, applications for entry in January 2024 should refer to the 'Admissions Policy 2023-2024'.

In-Year Applications

Please use this link to make an application for a place at Robert May’s School. Alternatively you can visit the school to request a paper copy. Applications will be processed as quickly as possible. We aim to respond to you in writing within 10 school days, but you will be notified in writing within 15 school days. If a place is available, we will contact you to arrange a start date. Your child will be expected to start within four school weeks from the offer date. If we are unable to offer a place, then you will receive a refusal letter and your child's name will be added to our waiting list.


If we are unable to offer a place at Robert May’s School, your child will automatically be added to the waiting list. You have the right to appeal the decision. Appeals must be lodged directly with Hampshire County Council. Please click here to make an admissions appeal.

Admission appeals dates for entry in September 2023 for current Year 6 applicants can be found here
