Parents across Leeds are being reminded to get their applications in for their child’s secondary school place for next September.

Although it is only early in the summer holidays, families with children starting secondary school in September 2017 were able to start applying for their child’s school place from Monday.

Parents and carers are being encouraged to visit Leeds City Council’s website – www.leeds.gov.uk – to complete an online application for their child’s place, before the closing date of October 31. For those applying online, offers will be emailed on March 1, 2017.

Coun Lisa Mulherin, executive member responsible for children and families, said: “Deciding which school is best for your child is an important decision and, with so many good schools in Leeds, is not an easy one to make. A lot of work has gone into making the admissions process as straight forward as possible and the online form is quick and easy to fill in. The online application process is easy and secure, and the quickest way to receive your child’s offer.”

To help parents and carers make their preferences, a range of information is available both directly from schools and from the council. Schools will provide information about their own admissions policy, transport and uniform information.
