In-year Transfers/Admissions

If your application is successful, we will get in touch with you to book an appointment for you to complete the necessary paperwork. At this appointment, we will provide you with information about the school, uniform etc and arrange a further visit for you and your child to meet their new class and teacher.

There may be times when children move schools as they move through the primary years, usually due to a house move. All these admissions of children into school are managed by Bradford Council Admissions Team. If you would like to apply for a place for your child, please contact the Admissions Team at Bradford Council on 01274 439200 or by email on PrimaryAdmissions@bradford.gov.uk. There is also information on their website at www.bradford.gov.uk/admissions.

Admissions Appeals

If the Admissions Team are unable to offer a child a place at our school, due to oversubscription then Bradford Council will allocate an alternative, please read the ‘Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for the Bradford Metropolitan District Area’ for further information. Any parent who is unhappy with the allocation has the right of appeal by applying to Bradford Council. An independent appeals panel then meets to consider all appeals by parents/carers who have been refused a place at our school and who wish to appeal against this decision. An appeals panel’s decision is binding for all parties concerned. If the appeals panel decides that we should admit a child to our school, then we will accept this and continue to do all we can to provide the best education for all the children at our school. (Details of appeal arrangements are set out in the Code of Practice on School Admissions Appeals, which came into force in September 2002).

Admission Arrangements for Secondary Schools

The application process for secondary schools closed on 31st October. Guidance is available on the Bradford Council website, which you can access by clicking here.
