Secondary school admissions update

Mon, 29/02/2016

On Tuesday 1 March 2016, parents who applied for a secondary school place for their child in September 2016 will find out which school their child has been given a place to attend.

If you applied online, you will be notified of the outcome of your applications during the evening of 1 March.

If you applied on a paper form, you will receive your outcome in the post on Wednesday 2 March.


While most applicants will receive an offer from their preferred school, for a small number of applications this may not have been possible. If this is the case, you have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel. Details about appealing will be included in the letter or email from the school, or from the council for community school and academies. The appeal process will vary depending on the school, please read your outcome letter or email carefully.
