Applying for a School Place in September 2016?
Whether it’s starting school for the first time or transferring to junior, middle or secondary school, applying for a school place has always been an exciting time for parents.
If you live in Kirklees, the Kirklees application process is now open and this is now an entirely online system.
The process is quick, easy and secure and is done through the Kirklees Parent Portal – if it’s the first time you’ve used it you’ll need to create an account but that doesn’t take long.
By now, most parents know which schools they want to apply for, but if you’re still looking then check out which schools are in your priority admission area/catchment area and which schools are nearest to your home address.
Depending on which type of school you’re applying for, the deadlines to apply for a school place in September 2016 are:
- Transfer to Secondary School – apply before 31 October 2015.
