Reminder for parents to apply for secondary school places

by Group Office on 25 October, 2021

Parents in County Durham are being reminded that the closing date to apply for secondary school places for their children is fast approaching.

The deadline for applications for the next academic year, which starts in September 2022, is Sunday 31 October 2021.
In order for a child to be eligible to start secondary school in September 2022, the child’s date of birth must fall between 1 September 2010 and 31 August 2011.

Cllr Richard Ormerod said:

“I urge parents to make sure they apply by the deadline, as a late application greatly reduces chances of getting into a preferred school.”

Applications can be made online at or by post. If posting, the forms should be sent back using signed for or special delivery services.

Application forms can also be requested by phoning 03000 265896 or by writing to the school places and admissions team at Green Lane, Spennymoor, County Durham DL16 6JQ.

Offers of places will be made to parents on 1 March 2022.

For applications completed online, offers will be received by email. For applications sent by post, offers will be received by letter. These should arrive by no later than 3 March 2022.
