How to apply for a secondary school place

Here is some information about 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 11 September 2017 you can apply online (opens in a new window) or if you don't have access to the internet you can apply by phone from 11 September 2017 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 11 September 2017. 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 three 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.
