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 dont get that school the admissions team can give you any school, even one not in our area. We suggest you put 3 choices.

Applications for a place at Secondary school for September 2021 must be made online via the Kirklees Council website.

 The deadline for applying for a Secondary School place is Saturday 31st October 2020.
