Transfer to secondary school

Transfer to secondary school applications closed on 31 October 2022. Late applications can still be made by completing an application form.

You can request an application form by completing the general enquiry form.

Your application will be treated as a late and therefore have a lower priority than applications received on time.

If your child is in their last year at a primary or junior school, you must apply for a place in Year 7 at a secondary school.


Decisions will be made on 1 March 2023. We will send you a letter on 1 March 2023 by second class post telling you the decision.
