Visits for Prospective Parents and Carers

Prospective parents and carers are encouraged to come and visit the school.  The open sessions are an opportunity to find out more about what our school has to offer and take a tour of the school building.  Some parents like to see the school in action so we offer a session during school hours.  We also offer an open evening for those parents who are working and may find it more convenient to visit outside school hours.  If you wish to come along, please contact the school office on 0113 2558719 to book a place on one of the sessions.

All Other Admissions

All other admissions are referred to as In-Year Transfers.  All Leeds schools handle their own in-year applications for school places.


Step 1

Once you have decided on your preferred school/s, complete the 'In Year Common Preference Form' and return it directly to the school/s.

Step 2

Schools will write back to you to inform you whether they can offer a place.  If a school is unable to offer a place, the Admissions Team will write to you to advise of the schools in your area and any vacancies at these schools.


Please note:

Where a family has moved into the area, once a place has been offered, the child can usually start as soon as possible.

Where no house move has taken place and a child is transferring to us from a neighbouring school, they would normally start at the beginning of a term.
