IN YEAR ADMISSIONS
If you’re moving into Leeds or want to change schools in Leeds, you need to make a school transfer – often called an in-year application.
We are part of the Leeds coordinated in-year application scheme. This means you can apply for a place online using the Leeds in-year application form at Before you move schools (leeds.gov.uk). You can apply for places at our school and other Leeds schools at the same time on this form.
If you have moved house, please upload evidence of the house move with the online application. You can find out what you need to provide on the above website.
We offer places by applying our admission policy criteria to your child’s application and we will contact you with our decision about offering you a place. We will tell you our decision no later than 15 school days from when you apply.
Our Nursery Admissions Policy gives full information about our School Nursery Unit and the admissions criteria for applications.
Application forms for the Nursery can be downloaded by clicking here:
They can also be requested from school by contacting the office on 0113 3074750 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We need to see the child's birth certificate and proof of address when handing in your application form.
If you are not offered a place at the academy you requested, you will have the right of appeal. Leeds City Council arranges our appeals and you can find the appeal form at School appeals (leeds.gov.uk).
If you are applying for a Reception place for September 2022, you need to submit your appeal form by the 15 May 2023 to ensure the appeal will be heard before the summer holidays.
