Admissions come under two categories, those that take place when a child makes the transition from Year 6 to Year 7, or an In-Year Admission. Both types of admission are currently arranged through the Kirklees School Admissions Team.

For end of Year 6 admissions, further information can be found using the link below to access the Guide for Parents/Carers - Starting secondary school:

An In-Year Admission is when a child already attends a school but wants to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time, for example because the child is moving to a new address. These transfers take place during the school year, which is why they are called in-year admissions.

There are two different types of in-year admission:

·         Parents or carers who are moving/have moved house and wish to move to a school closer to their new home.

·         Parents or carers who are not moving house, or whose change of address is not a significant one (a significant house move is defined as over 3 miles for Key Stage 2 and above), but would like their child to change school.

For an In-Year Admission, the In-Year Common Application Form (ICAF) should be completed:
