open days for Y6 2019

Monday 23rd September, 2019

Dear Parents/Carers,


As you will be aware, you are now able to apply for a place for your child at the high school of your choice. In order to help with this decision, there are a number of open evenings that you could attend. I would recommend attending as many as possible, so that you can compare them, in order to find the one that is right for your child.


You must apply online by 31st October. If you do not get your application in before the deadline, then the authority will allocate your child a place in a school, which may not be the one nearest to your home. To appeal against such a decision is a lengthy process and often parents are not successful with an appeal.


Click on and search for ‘apply for a secondary school place’.
