How to apply

It is the parents’ responsibility to apply directly to the Council, but the school can offer support and guidance upon request. Or please see guide for parents

If there are more applications than there are places available, applications are subject to oversubscription criteria.

Admission to Secondary School (age 11)

Secondary schools admit children from the ages of 11 through to 16. This is known as Key Stages 3 and 4. If the school has a Sixth form, children will stay there until they are 18.
The year groups at Secondary School level are:

Year 7 (age 11 - 12)
Year 8 (age 12 - 13)
Year 9 (age 13 - 14) SATs testing takes place (end of Key Stage 3)
Year 10 (age 14 - 15)
Year 11 (age 15 - 16) The year most students take their GCSE exams (end of Key Stage 4)
Year 12 (age 16 - 17) AS level exams taken in this year (also known as the Lower Sixth)
Year 13 (age 17 - 18) A-Level exams taken in this year (also known as the Upper Sixth)

Starting at a Secondary school is probably the biggest change a child will face in his/her school career, and therefore choosing the right school is paramount.  Secondary Schools have Open Days/Evening where parents/carers and children can visit to get a feel for the school. Click here to view open dates and times

All secondary schools have induction days at the end of the summer term where new pupils entering year 7 can visit the school and meet their teachers and learn where everything is.
