Secondary admissions

The admissions round for Secondary for the academic year commences on the 26th September 2022 and closes on 21st November 2022. Only applications received by the published closing date, with relevant supporting evidence for the receipt of application forms, will be considered in the initial round of allocations of pupils. Forms received after this date, or incomplete forms, may result in a child being refused a place at their chosen secondary school. 

Important dates for you as a parent to note can be viewed here: School & Nursery Admission Dates 2023.

Children transfer from primary school to secondary school at the beginning of the school year following their 11th birthday (i.e. if your child is 11 between the 1st September 2022 and 31st August 2023 they would be entitled to a secondary school place in September 2023).

Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate pupils, an application must be made to attend Secondary School at the appropriate time.

You have responsibility, by law, to ensure your child receives appropriate full-time education.

Please register and complete the following form for secondary school admissions.  

If you are still unsure about which school to choose for your child, please see our Starting Schools Booklet.
