The table shows you a timetable of key times in the school year. Please use it as a guide.
Applications for secondary school open on 1 August 2015 if your child was born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006 and is in their last year of primary school. You need to apply by 31 October 2016. They will start school in September 2017.
To apply online follow the link in Top Tasks.
You must apply for a school place using the address where your child lives for the majority of the time.
If you apply online keep your acknowledgement as proof. If you do not receive an acknowledgement email within 24 hours, your application was not completed successfully and you need to apply again.
If you apply by post, we recommend that you keep a copy of your form. If you hand it in to a school, we recommend that you keep a receipt.
Secondary school place offers are emailed to parents and carers on 1 March (or the first working day after) and postal offers are sent by second class post.
Your nearest school is not necessarily the closest school to your home address. Not all schools have a distance priority/criteria in their policies. Please check the schools Admissions Policy for information before you make a decision. If you would like confirmation of the nearest school to your home address please contact us.
