National Offer Day
  • If you haven't been offered your first preference school you will have automatically been added to your higher preference school/s waiting list.

  • Don't refuse the school you have been offered. You have time to think about the school offer and to get advice from the school admissions team. School places are very limited, if you refuse your school place you may not be offered anything closer.

  • If you have been offered a school place in your second preference or below and are happy with your school offer, you must contact the Newcastle Council school admissions team in writing/email if you no longer want to be considered for your higher preference schools. If you don't and you are offered a higher preference school during the waiting list process, they will automatically remove your current school offer and offer the higher preference; even if you have accepted the school place.
