Schools admissions: applications for overseas children
In most cases, children arriving from overseas have the right to attend schools in England.
It is the responsibility of parents to check that their children have a right, under their visa entry conditions, to study at a school. To help parents we recommend that those wishing to apply for a state funded school check that they have a right of right of abode or the conditions of their visas otherwise permit access a state-funded school.
Foreign nationals cannot use the 6 month visitor visa or a 6 month short-term study visa to enter the UK to enol as a pupil at a school. Find out what these visas can be used for on the visitor visa and short term study visa pages.
