As you may be aware, the new secondary school admission round opens on Wednesday, 12 September 2018, for parents of current Year 6 children to apply for a secondary school (Year 7) place for September 2019.
The statutory national closing date for applications is 31st October 2018.
Applications can be made online via www.essex.gov.uk/admissions. 98% of parents in Essex applied online last year.
All of the application information is available on the website above.
The website also has a copy of the Secondary Education in Essex 2019-20 booklet which contains details of all secondary school admission policies.
I provide a link to the booklet below.
