Secondary school admissions

If your child was born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2004, he or she will be due to start secondary school in September 2015.

Parents will be invited to submit their preferences for the Secondary School they would like their child to attend. Preference forms will be sent via the child's Primary School in September 2014.

These forms need to be completed and returned by 31st October 2014.

Parents can also apply on line using the log-on details that will have been sent with the preference form. Please click here for details on the On-Line Admissions System.

Under the Co-ordinated Admissions Scheme, preference forms will be distributed to children from the Local Authority in which the child's home address is. Parents wishing to apply for a school in another Local Authority should complete the details on the application that has been given to them and the 'home' Local Authority will act as a co-ordinator between the other neighbouring Authorities.

A booklet is available containing information and help in the transition to secondary school. This also includes details of individual schools' admissions criteria. View a copy of the Primary and Secondary Education in Middlesbrough.
