If your child was born between 1st September 2008 and 31st August 2009, you will need to apply for a secondary school place for September 2020.

To maximise your opportunities of getting a place at one of your preferred secondary schools, name six schools with at least one being from your local school.

Remember, you must apply for a place, even if your child:

  • Has a brother or sister attending the school
  • Lives in the schools priority area (for Sarah Bonnell only)
