Quite late now, you should have called the school earlier and may have to take some exams. What you can do now is to call more schools, and hopefully one will have a vacancy for you. :D

How far away is the school from your new house? My advice is that since your child is in Sec 3 and should be used to the school, why not let him/her completes O level so as to minimize disruption to his/her studies. If the distance is not a real problem, I would suggest that you refrain from transferring school. Moving house is stressful to a child and transferring school will add more stress which may affect his/her study.
