Apply for a secondary school place for September 2019


If your child is currently in year 6 at junior/primary school, they will be due to transfer to secondary school in September 2019.  You must apply to Cumbria County Council for a secondary school place.

Please note - the online application process closed on 31st October 2018.

If you have not yet made an application for your child to transfer to secondary school in September 2019, you need to do so as soon as possible.

Before you apply for a school place, please make sure that you have read through the booklet 'Transfer to Secondary School in Cumbria' (PDF 499kb).  If you need a printed copy of the booklet, please contact the School Admissions and Appeals Team:

The closing date for applications was 31st October 2018.  

As the deadline date for transfer to secondary applications has now passed, parents and carers will no longer be able to apply online for a secondary place in September 2019.  If you have not yet made an application, please see the section "How do I apply for a secondary school place?"

If you have already made an online application you can view your application online.

If you live outside Cumbria, you need to apply through your own Local Authority, even if you want to apply for a place in a Cumbrian school.  You must confirm that you have read the booklet and provided accurate information before submitting your application.
