Secondary Admissions Deadline for year 6 Pupils

The deadline for applying for year 7 places for September 2021 is 31 October 2020.  Parents of year 6 children who are self-isolating, or have been withdrawn to Electively Home Educate (EHE) due to Covid-19 may be unaware of this deadline and the importance of applying for a school on time, particularly with so many schools only able to offer ‘virtual’ open evenings due to the restrictions required by their Covid risk assessments.  Primary schools are asked to share the links below with parents of all children in year 6, including those who are self-isolating or have recently withdrawn to EHE, to advise them of the deadline and to offer support with the application process, where necessary.
