Transfering from one school to another

In order to make an application to transfer your child to our school during after the school year has begun in September, you need to first check with the school office that we have a place in the relevant year group for your child. Please bring in your child's birth certificate or passport when you do so. Then you will need to make an online application for a place using the following link:

https://www.leeds.gov.uk/schools-and-education/school-admissions/before-you-move-schools

Leeds City Council Admissions Team can be contacted on Tel: 0113 2224414 for any queries about the progress of your application.

If you have moved house, please upload evidence of the house move with the online application. You can find out what you need to provide on the above website. 

We have to offer places by applying our admission policy criteria to your child’s application and we will contact you with our decision about offering you a place.    We will tell you our decision no later than 15 schools days from when you apply.   

If we cannot offer you a place, we will

  1. write to you to explain the reasons,
  2. explain how you can appeal and   
  3. add your child to our waiting list in case a place becomes free.

Our waiting lists are kept until end of each school year. You will need to make a new application if you want to be on the waiting list for the following school year.

 

Appeals

If we cannot offer you a place, you will have the right of appeal. The appeal panel is independent of the school and council and their decision is legally binding. 

Before you appeal you:

Leeds City Council arranges our appeals and you can find the appeal form at School appeals (leeds.gov.uk)

Appeals for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2these classes are limited to 30 pupils per teacher by law. This means that appeals for these places are less likely to be successful. 

If our school refuses your child a place because of this limit and you want to appeal, you will need to make an infant class size appeal.  You can see if your reasons are likely to be successful by reading the Department for Education's information about infant class size appeals.   

Other appeals - You can appeal because you want your child to attend a particular school. These are successful if the panel agree that the reasons for your appeal outweigh the school's decision not to admit any more children.

Wanting your child to go to a school because you think it is the best one in the area is not likely to convince the panel that your child should get a place there.

 

High School Admissions into Year 7 are also co-ordinated by Leeds City Council. For information on how to apply and to see deadlines, follow this link:
