Admissions

We welcome all prospective pupils and parents to visit the school by appointment. Please contact us for information on booking an appointment.

Our admissions arrangements are provided by Leeds City Council through the Children’s Services Department. The criteria is designed to accommodate parental preference and to give as many parent/carers as possible a place for their child at their preferred school.

You can see our Admissions Policy here or visit the Leeds City Council website for further information regarding the admissions process.

Refusal

If you are not offered a place at the school you requested you may wish to consider the following:

Appeals

You can appeal against the decision to refuse your child a place at your preferred school(s). By doing this, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list for your higher preference school. In the meantime, you should accept the place you have been offered by contacting the school directly. This will ensure your child has a place in September and it will not affect your waiting list position or the appeal.

If you wish to appeal for a school in a different local authority, you should contact the relevant council for further details.
