Before submitting a year 7 application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2023 edition of their local authorities ‘Starting Secondary School’ guide
Please also view this presentation which summarises the key information you need to know about applying for your child’s secondary school.
It is vital that you find out about the schools you are interested in. We advise that you attend as many open days as possible.
Once you have decided which schools to apply for, you must order your preferences, with your first preference being the school you most want to attend. The Local Authority strongly recommends you name six preferences.
