Transfer to Secondary School in Year 7

If your child lives in Nottingham city and is due to transfer to secondary school in September 2020, 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 2008 and 31 August 2009. 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.

Please contact the School Admissions Team on 0115 841 5568 or email to request an application form.
