Transfer to Secondary School in Year 7

If your child lives in Nottingham city and is due to transfer to secondary school in September 2019, you will need to apply for a secondary school place.

You can only use the secondary application form if your child was born between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008. If your child was not born between these dates and you wish to apply for a secondary school place, you should use the online form on the New to the Area or Wishing to Change Schools' page.

How to Apply

Please contact the School Admissions Team on 0115 841 5568 or email schooladmissions@nottinghamcity.gov.uk to request an application form.


The closing date for applications was Wednesday, 31 October 2018.
If you apply after the deadline this may reduce your chances of getting a place at your preferred school, particularly if it is popular.

Your Application

You can no longer use the Capita system to apply online, but you can still view any application you made prior to the closing date.

Basic details on the application process, along with things you should consider can be found in the summary guide for late applicants below.
