Secondary school places
If your child is in year 6, you can apply for a secondary school (year 7) place between 12 September 2018 and 31 October 2018.
Before you apply
- check you live in the Essex administrative area
- read the secondary school admissions booklet (PDF, 916KB)
You may also want to check the priority admission catchment area schools.
Online applications are now closed.
Use the secondary school admission application form (PDF, 93KB) if you wish to make a late application.
All applications received after 31 October 2018 will be treated as late and will only be processed after all the on-time applications.
You are less likely to get a place at one of your preferred schools if you apply late.
