How to apply for a school place in Leeds

There are different ways for applying for a school place in Leeds, depending on whether:

  • Your child is in Primary (age 4-11) school or Secondary (age 11-16) school
  • You need the place before the school year starts in September or if the school year has already begun

Parents have the right to apply for a school place based on which school they prefer, but this is not an automatic guarantee that their request will be met. Generally, a child will go to the school that is nearest to where they live but there are exceptions. For example, the class the child would go in is already full or if the child has needs that cannot be met by the school.
