During the spring term we usually start sending information out to our year 5 pupils, supplied by the various high schools. They may be having open days or there may be entrance exams to sit. Although this seems early, applications have to be submitted in the autumn term.  We also ask that anyone who may need help completing the online form speak to the school office in September as we will be happy to help you with your application. 


Please note: it is not recommended to only put one choice, as if you don't get that school, the admissions team can give you any school, even one not in our local area. We suggest you put 3 choices.


The transfer to secondary school process for September 2025 will begin on 1 September 2024. 


School will provide more information in September 2024.


Applications must be made online via the Kirklees Council website. Click here to link to Kirklees schools admissions web page.
