Is your child due transfer to secondary school in September 2022? If the answer is yes, then it’s now time for you to apply for a school place.
You must apply by 31 October 2021 or you will have limited choice.
It is VERY important that you read the guide for parents and carers which gives you all the information you need about the application and allocation process.
Research the schools that you are interested in applying to:
- Visit schools you are interested in, most have open days you can go to. Check each school’s website for details.
- Find your catchment area school. There is no guarantee that your child will be offered a place at your local school. This will depend on how many applications are received for the places available
- Understand the admission criteria for your preferred schools (read section D of the guide for parents and carers or visit the schools website for details). This information should give you an indication of how likely your child is to be offered a place, especially for those schools that are oversubscribed
- Read the schools Ofsted reports, or visit school websites for information
Check the school league tables
