Further information

Applications to start autumn 2018

For parents and carers whose child is due to start Yr9 this autumn at one of the schools listed below. The process for applying for them to transfer to a county upper school will be available from 11 September 2017.

Important changes to the county school transfer process

From autumn 2017, a number of Leicestershire secondary schools are changing their age ranges to become all-through schools, starting in year 7 (age 11). No secondary schools will have a year 6 (age 10) intake.

Three Leicestershire schools will still have pupils transferring at the end of year 9 to an upper school.

  • Brookvale High School, Groby
  • Ivanhoe College, Ashby
  • Ibstock Community College

Only complete a county school transfer, if you meet the following:

  • Your child is living in Leicester City
  • Your child is attending one of the 3 above schools in year 9
  • You need to apply for a year 10 place in a county upper school.

You must complete your application with us and we will co-ordinate with Leicestershire County Council who will make the decision.

Closing date - midnight on Tuesday 31 October 2017

All applications received after this date are treated as late and will be dealt with after those received on time and you are less likely to be offered a place at your preferred schools.
