Coronavirus - Advice on School Applications
All parents and carers are politely asked to note that although you will be able to continue to make a mid-term (in-year) application, your application will now be held on file until the Government/DfE issue further guidance to confirm the full re-opening of all schools.
Applications from parents and carers wishing to make a late Year 7 transfer application for any reason, for entry Autumn 2020, will be processed as best we are able during the current school restrictions.
My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Apply online and on time - applying online is secure and is the quickest and easiest way to apply.
Everyone must apply for a school place, as there is no automatic entry for any school.
To make a late application, you’ll need to apply using our online system.
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 is eligible to:
start secondary school in September 2020 eg was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 inclusive
either transfer into Year 10 (at certain schools) or you want them to go to a Studio school* from September 2020 eg born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006
start primary school in September 2020 eg born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 inclusive
transfer from infant to junior school for the academic year 2020-21 eg born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013.
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.
The results for September 2020 applications received by the late application closing dates (31 January 2020 for secondary, 15 February 2020 for primary), will be made available on the 'school offer' days - 2 March 2020 for secondary school places and 16 April 2020 for primary school places.
The results for applications received after these dates, will be made available from 3 April 2020 for secondary school and 28 May 2020 for primary school places.
If you applied online for your child’s school place, you will receive an email.
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.
