Have you applied for your child’s secondary school place?

If your child was born between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011, they will start at secondary school in September 2022.

Moving from primary or junior school to secondary school is not an automatic process, so you’ll need to apply for a place for your child.

Choosing a secondary school for your child is an exciting but important decision, so it’s worth finding out as much as you can about your local schools before you apply.

You can apply for a school place online, and there’s plenty of guidance on our website to help you, including a video about the admissions process and an e-booklet that has all the information you’ll need.

You’ll also find a map to help you find the nearest school to you and details of who to get in touch with if you need help applying.

The online closing date is midnight on Sunday 31 October. If you apply after this date, your child is unlikely to get a place at an oversubscribed school.
