Applying for a Secondary School Place - September 2022

 

 

May we remind parents and carers the importance of applying for a secondary school place, if you want your child to start Y7 in September 2022. Pupils with an EHCP do not need to apply through this process.

 

You can apply online at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions, or make a phone application by contacting the Education Team on 01522 782030.   If applicants live outside of Lincolnshire then they need to apply to their home Local Authority even if they want a school in Lincolnshire.

 

Many people will have been waiting for the 11+ results before applying, and hopefully you will have received these now. The main closing date for applications is 31 October. There is no advantage in applying early.

 

If you feel that you need support with the application process due to a variety of reasons such as literacy issues or a language barrier please feel free to contact the Education Team on 01522 782030 or email schooladmissions@lincolnshire.gov.uk

 

Free interactive workshops for parents from The Adult Skills and Family Learning team.
