Everyone must apply for a school place, as there is no automatic entry for any school.
Before you apply for your child’s school place for September 2020, please make sure the following applies to you:
You live in Leicestershire.
Your child was:
born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 inclusive and is due to start secondary school in September 2020 or
born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006 and is either - at a school where the children are eligible for transfer into Year 10 or - you want them to go to a Studio school*.
You know what school you would like your child to go to. If you’re not sure, use our find a school search.
You know how your child will get to school If not, see the school transport section.
You’ve read the Your Guide to secondary education which includes everything you need to know to apply for a school place and the priority criteria for how school places are allocated. Allocations are made using the admissions criteria and not the preference order. Choosing more than one school doesn't affect how your higher preference school(s) are considered. You can view the catchment area map in the find a school search or on the school's website.
If your child is currently in Year 9, we need to make you aware of the Studio School in Leicestershire which your child can transfer to in Year 10; Stephenson Studio School, Coalville.
Studio Schools have a strong employer involvement in the curriculum and focus on developing skills for employment. They typically cater for students from Year 10 to Year 13, so if your child is in Year 9 and you're interested in applying for a studio school, please apply online.
