Apply now for your child’s secondary school place
Education / Tue 12th Sep 2023 at 09:40am
PARENTS and carers of Year 6 pupils are being encouraged to submit their application for their child’s secondary school place for September 2024.
The window for secondary school applications opens today (Tuesday 12 September) and runs until the national closing date of 31 October 2023.
Parents and carers can submit their applications at www.essex.gov.uk/admissions.
The website also features information on different schools and their admissions criteria.
The 31 October deadline for applications is a national deadline. Applications made after this date will be considered once all on-time applications have been determined. This means applying late could reduce the chance of a child being offered a place at their preferred school.
Parents are encouraged to visit their preferred school, carefully consider each school’s admissions criteria, consider how their child will get to and from school, and use all six preferences on their application.
