Secondary school application deadline approaches

PARENTS of children due to start secondary school in September 2012 are being reminded that the relevant forms must be completed and submitted by the end of this month.

The Secondary Application Form - and Supplementary Information Form if required – must be submitted to Cambridgeshire County Council by 31 October 2011.

Information and guidance about how to apply for a place is available in the Next Steps – Admission to Secondary School: a guide for parents 2012 – 2013 leaflet. This publication is available from Cambridgeshire County Council’s website at: www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/admissions, where parents will also be able to access the online application facility, or download a paper copy of the Secondary Application Form

If parents submit their applications late, there is a real risk that their child will not offered a place at one of their preferred schools, as other children’s applications (those received by the 31 October deadline) will be processed ahead of theirs.
