Supplementary information forms
The schools below will require you to complete a supplementary information form (SIF) in addition to your online application form.
SIFs should be returned directly to the school by 31 October 2017.
Admissions policies tell you how an admitting authority decides to offer places. If there are more applications than places at a school, the priorities set out in the admissions policy are used to allocate places in priority order until the year group is full.
Academies, foundation and Voluntary Aided schools have their own
admissions policies, and some include different priorities to the
Leeds Admissions Policy 2018/19 (PDF 61KB). They may not include a distance element.
Before you apply it is important that you look at the admissions policy for each school you wish to include in your application to make sure you have a realistic chance of being offered a place.
