Further Information for Confirmed In-Year Transfers 

Springfield hosts an open evening for prospective students and their families during late September or early October every year. In addition, the school runs three open mornings during which parents can see the school ‘in action’.

Open evening 2020 - To be confirmed

Open mornings 2020 - To be confirmed

Admission to the school is managed by the Admissions Service of Portsmouth City Council, which is required to take part in a cross-border co-ordinated scheme for main round admissions. This allows parents to complete one application form from their home local authority, regardless of the school and the area in which they wish to apply for a place. This is known as a ‘Common Application Form’.

Please contact the Admissions Service directly for information regarding applying for a place at Springfield.

Portsmouth operates an ‘Equal Preference’ admissions scheme in line with government requirements. If the school is oversubscribed, applications will be considered first according to the following priorities in the order set out below:

  1. Children who are or have been looked after by a local authority.
  2. Children or families who have a significant medical, physical, psychological or social need.
  3. Children living within the school’s designated catchment area.

If the school cannot admit all applications from the catchment area, priorities (as defined in the Portsmouth City Council Admissions Policy) will be used.
