Applications for Reception - Year 6

The application process for pupils to join a Reception class in 2020 is now closed. You should have received an email containing your offer from the local authority on Thursday 16th April 2020. You should then have accepted your offer by clicking on the link here.

For further information about the process, please visit

If you wish for your child to join our school from Year 1 - 6, you will need to complete an 'In Year Common Preference Form'. Once completed, please return this to us.

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.

Please see here our Primary Phase Admissions Policy. Parents/carers can also contact the local authority or visit the Leeds City Council website for further information regarding our admission arrangements. You can also contact our Primary Phase Admissions Team on 0113 3368401 /


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


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.
