Going up to secondary school (11+)


With the closure of schools we envisage a serious delay to any in-year applications for school places. Please be assured that we will process your application as soon as we can and there is no need to contact us unless there’s a change in your circumstances.

Applications for children starting school or moving to a secondary or junior school in September will hopefully be unaffected.

You will need to apply for a place at the secondary school you would like your child to attend – it doesn’t happen automatically. See when below

You can name a maximum of three different schools. Listing more than one:
• won’t affect your first preference – we always offer the highest we can, and
• will increase your chances of an offer at a school you prefer.

Read the Admissions rules to find out what is and isn’t taken into account.
