Invitation to apply letters

Letters telling you which your priority school is are sent out at the end of October. This is the school where your child has a higher priority.  
If you have not received your letter by mid-November please contact Leeds on:

9am to 5pm (Mon to Fri)

The admission policy describes how priority is determined and, in turn, how places are offered. It also provides information about what constitutes a home address, how late applications are dealt with and how offers should be accepted. It provides an overview of how the waiting list works, how temporary school sites are taken into account and how applications outside the normal admission round​ should be made.

How to apply for a school place

Applications open on 1 November. Your application needs to be made using the online application form (when available). Leeds' 'how to' video will help you complete the application form.​
