On behalf of School Places and Admissions Team.
The application process for the Secondary Admissions 2021 Intake is due to begin on Monday 14 September 2020.
A copy of the preference letter is attached to the post below, and this preference letter will explain the application process to parents/carers. Pupils in Year 6 should have had a copy of this preference letter on Friday.
Parents can make their application for Secondary School online by visiting www.durham.gov.uk/schooladmissions and the School Admissions online application facility will be available to parents from Monday 14 September 2020.
The Closing Date for Secondary School Applications is Saturday 31 October 2020.
If parents do not wish to apply online they can complete a paper application form, and these are available to print from our website (same website address as above)
Alternatively these application forms can be requested by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone from the School Admissions and Transport Team on 03000 265 896. Copies of the Parent’s guide ‘Primary and Secondary School Admission Guide 2021/2022’ will also be available from our website or on request from Monday 14 September 2020.
Please note that any year 6 pupil who lives in another local authority but attend Bowburn Primary School, the parents should contact their Home Local Authority (i.e. the authority to which they pay their council tax) to request an application form, even if the parent would like to apply for a Secondary School in County Durham.
