Secondary School Places
If your child was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009, you can apply in September 2019 for them a place at secondary school for the academic year starting September 2020.
Applying for a place before 31 October 2019
For your child to start secondary school in September 2020, you need to apply for a place before the deadline of 31 October 2019. There are two ways you can do this:
If your child doesn’t currently attend a Barnsley primary school, but you want to apply for them a place at a Barnsley secondary school, apply online (before 31 October 2019) or fill in a paper application form and return to School Admissions.
Applying for a place after 31 October 2019
From midnight on 31 October 2019, you'll no longer be able to apply for a secondary school place online.
You can still apply for a place by filling in a paper application form (from all primary schools and School Admissions) and returning it to School Admissions. We strongly recommend handing paper forms into school and obtaining a record. If posting please keep a proof of postage.
Appeals will be held between May and July. We have to comply with infant class size legislation and this may determine the type of appeal.
