Parents who have applied online for their child to start at a Lincolnshire secondary school in September can collect their offer from Tuesday March 1, and the county council will post offer letters to parents using a paper form on the same day.

The council has advised parents to accept the place offered even if the school was not one of their preferences, as this makes sure that their child will have a school place for September. Once parents have accepted a school place they can apply for transport.

In some cases, parents may not have received an offer at one of their preferred schools and might want to appeal against this. Parents who have applied online and need to appeal to an independent school admission appeals panel can usually do this online.

Parents who have applied online can visit to collect their offer from midnight on March 1, up until March 18.

The county council expects their website to be very busy when the offers are initially released, so if you experience any problems accessing the page, please be patient and try again.

The vast majority of children starting at secondary school will receive an offer of a place at their parents’ first preference school this year. There are over 7,600 children wanting a secondary school place in Lincolnshire this year, with 92 per cent receiving their first preference school.
