Apply for a place in Year 7 at a secondary school

If your child lives in Nottingham city and your child was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009, they are due to transfer to secondary school in September 2020 and you will need to apply for a secondary school place.

If your child was not born between these dates and you wish to apply for a secondary school place, you should use the online form on the New to the Area or Wishing to Change Schools' page.

How to apply 

The closing date for applications was Thursday 31 October 2019. Applying  after the deadline  may reduce your chances of getting a place at your preferred school, particularly if it is popular.

Please contact the School Admissions Team on 0115 841 5568 or email schooladmissions@nottinghamcity.gov.uk to request an application form.
