Post-Primary Applications 2021

The Post-Primary application process will take place online, for the first time, in 2021. The application will be open from 12 noon on 1st March and will remain open until 4pm on 16th March. You will be able to access it on the Education Authority’s website.

Please take the time now to watch their information video and read their guidance to familiarise yourself with the process. We also recommend that you ensure you have any required documentation to hand, including your child’s birth certificate, which you will need to upload with your application.

It is important that you read the admissions criteria for the schools that you may wish to apply to. These criteria, along with guidance on the process, are available on the Education Authority's website. Please visit:
