Applications now open for secondary school places in Gedling borough


Parents with pupils due to move up to secondary school in Gedling borough next autumn can now apply for a place.

The application process for children transferring from primary schools to secondary schools in September 2018 opened on Monday (7) and will close on Tuesday, October 312017.

Parents in the borough will need to apply through Nottinghamshire County Council, even if they wish to apply for schools in other areas.

Nottinghamshire County Council service director for education, learning and skills, Marion Clay, said: “It probably seems no time at all since parents were looking for a reception place for their child and deciding which schools to apply for.

Parents can also find more information about the  application process, schools, the number of places available or how places are allocated at that web address or can call 0300 500 80 80.
