Richmond Council coordinates all in-year applications for schools in the borough. they will pass on your child's details to the admissions authorities for the schools you have named and they will let you know if your child has qualified for a place.  If none of the schools that you apply for is able to offer your child a place, they will advise you of the nearest school with a vacancy and you will be able to make another application.
