How to apply for a secondary school place

How to make the application for a secondary school place for your child, including how to apply, deadlines and where to get support and help.


From 9 September 2019 you can apply online.

Or if you cannot apply online you can apply by phone from 9 September 2019 by ringing Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190.

If your child goes to a Derbyshire primary school, you will receive admissions information from the school some time during the week commencing 9 September 2019. We prefer you to apply online - although you can still apply by phone. If for some reason you are unable to make an application either online or by phone, tel: 01629 537479.

You only make one application and you are invited to state 3 preferences on it. This is the only application form you need to fill in - whether you do that by phone or online.

Online or phone applications will be acknowledged automatically.
