Consultation on Admission Arrangements for September 2012

We are consulting on the 2012-2013 admission arrangements for a period of 8 weeks and if you are a Leeds parent of a school age child or a member of a Leeds community group we would welcome your comments. Please follow the links below.

We are required to have in place arrangements for parents to apply for a school place in primary schools including reception and Year 3 (junior schools); and secondary schools in Year 7.  We must also have arrangements for parents to apply for a school outside of the normal arrangements, for example if they move house.

Parents who applied online will receive their offer by email on the 1st March 2011. Parents who applied on a paper form have had their offer sent by second class post on the 1st March 2011. We regret that we cannot inform you of your offer over the telephone but for any other queries please contact The Admissions Team on 0113 2224414. 

Applying for a primary or secondary school place for September 2011

Primary schools, including infant and junior schools, between 1 November 2010 and 15 January 2011

Late Applications

If you apply after the deadline we cannot guarantee to consider your preferences at the same time as those received on time.  Any primary or junior application received after 18 February 2011 will only be dealt with once all other applicants have been offered a school place, unless there are significant and exceptional reasons.
