Year 6 Secondary Transfer

If your child was born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012, they should be transferring to secondary school in September 2023. 

The application process for secondary transfer opens on 1 September 2022 and closes on 31 October 2022. The National offer date is 1 March 2023.

The eAdmissions site is open for you to register your details and to make an application for a secondary place.

Offers for on-time applicants will be released on 1 March 2023 - this is the national offer day. Applicants who applied online will be notified by email through their online accounts on the evening of the national offer day. Applicants who applied on 'paper' will receive their outcome by email on 2 March 2023.
