Apply for a secondary school place for September 2022

Please note - the online application process closes on 31st October 2021.

Applications received after 31 October 2021 will be treated as late applications. This means that they will not be considered until we have dealt with all timely applications and allocated places to these applicants. 

If you submit a late application after 31 October 2021 but before 5 January 2022 and you feel that there are exceptional reasons that prevented you from submitting your application on time, you must provide an explanation of these reasons and provide independent proof to confirm your circumstances. These reasons will be considered and, if accepted, your application will be considered along with the timely applications. If they are not accepted, or if you do not provide the information required to confirm your exceptional circumstances until after 5 January 2022, your application will continue to be considered as late.

Before you apply for a school place, please read through the booklet Transfer to Secondary School in Cumbria (PDF 3MB).  If you need a printed copy of the booklet, please contact the School Admissions and Appeals Team:

Telephone: 01228 221582

Copies are also available in all infant and primary schools and public libraries in Cumbria.

To apply for a Year 7 place for your child in September 2022, you can:

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.
