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 2022, please make sure the following applies to you:
You live in Leicestershire.
Your child is eligible to:
start secondary school in September 2022 e.g. was born between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011 inclusive
transfer into Year 10 if you want them to go to a Studio School* from September 2022 eg born between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008
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 our helpful Your Guide to 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 you’re applying for more than one child to change school, you need to complete a separate application for each child.
Use your right to apply for three schools, but make sure that one choice is always your catchment school (available on the school’s website).
Read each school’s admissions policy before making an application; available on either the School policies page or the school's website - check the Your Guide to education - list of schools for more information.
You should only include additional information if it is relevant to the school's admission criteria.
If more than one parent has legal responsibility for your child, both parents must be in agreement over the school(s) requested.
Check that you press the 'submit' button and receive an acknowledgement email. If not, try again or contact School Admissions.
Make a note of your username and password.
If your child is currently in Year 9, the Studio School in Leicestershire which your child can transfer to in Year 10 is 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.
