This form should be used for students who are residents of the City of New Westminster, where the student or family would like to apply for a transfer to an out-of-catchment school. 

Due to enrollment growth and space restrictions, a number of the schools within our District have been deemed to be “at full capacity.” Transfers cannot be made to schools deemed at capacity, with the exception of students with sibling status (for students with siblings who are already enrolled at that school, and will still be attending them in the 2022 school year). A separate application form is available for those applying for a transfer under the sibling status exemption: https://newwestschools.ca/transfer-out-of-catchment-request-form-sibling-status-2022-23/

Please fill out all of the below information if you would like to have your child considered for a transfer (out-of-catchment placement). If the automated confirmation of your submission does not land in your inbox, please check your junk mail to confirm that your submission has been sent.

Admission decisions for the desired school or program will be made in June and communicated by June 10, 2022.

A separate form must be submitted for each child you would like to have considered. If you would like to concurrently apply for more than one school for consideration, you must submit a separate form for each school and child. 

Please Note: Acceptance of Out-of-Catchment lasts until the student ages-out of the elementary school of acceptance and does not guarantee acceptance to the Out-of-Catchment middle school.
