Year 7 Admissions


Year 7 Admissions – September 2024

If you are a parent of a child who will be starting Year 7 in September 2024, the Local Authority will be distributing information via primary schools with regards to the secondary school transfer process at the beginning of the Autumn term. 

The closing date to apply for a Year 7 secondary school place is 31st October 2023.

We usually expect a high volume of phone calls in September, it may not be possible to speak to all parents individually - contact will be made by email.
