Year 6 children will be bringing a letter home about applications for secondary school places today. School has been asked to share the following information from the Local Authority with parents/carers:
This letter will provide parents with details of how they can make their child’s application for a Secondary School placement in 2022.
The application process for the Secondary Admissions 2021 Intake is due to begin on Monday 6th September 2021.
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 the 6th of September 2021.
The Closing Date for Secondary School Applications is the 31st October 2021.
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) from Monday the 6th September 2021.
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 265896.
Copies of the Parent’s guide “Primary and Secondary School Admissions in County Durham 2022/2023” will also be available from our website or on request from Monday the 6th September 2021.
Please note that if you have any year 6 pupils who live in another local authority but attend your 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.
Thank-you for your co-operation with this matter, it is much appreciated. If you have any questions relating to this please contact me via telephone on 03000 265892 or by e-mail to email@example.com
