Secondary school admissions

The closing date to apply for your child to start secondary school in September 2019 has now passed.

All applications submitted on or before the closing date of 31 October 2018 will be dealt with at the same time.

Any applications received after 31 October 2018 will be classed as late and will only be processed after those which were received on time, unless the child has changed address or has recently been taken into care. For more information take a look at the Secondary education – Information for parents 2019-20 booklet [pdf].
