“We aim to send all young people into an ever-changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it.”


Year 6-7 transition from Primary to Secondary School

Our published Admission Number (PAN) is 140

The Local Authority co-ordinates admissions to School on behalf of Wickersley Partnership Trust which is the admissions authority for this school.  Applications for a place at the school should be made via the Local Authority School Admissions Team:  www.rotherham.gov.uk/schools or telephone 01709 823777.

All parents/carers have a right to express a preference for any school for their child. The Local Authority enables parents/carers to apply for up to three schools. Information about each school is given in the school’s prospectus annually, which are available directly from each school. Alternatively, information can be gained from individual school websites.

Parents/carers will receive a booklet setting out the Local Authority’s procedures for admissions of children to secondary schools in July (as their child leaves Year 5 for the summer holidays and will be returning to school as a Year 6 pupil) in Primary School. This booklet explains the procedure for expressing a preference(s). The relevant forms can be found in this booklet. You can also apply online through the Rotherham Council website.

Any application received after the closing date will be considered as a late application and you will be far less likely to obtain a place at your preferred school.

Where there are more applications than places available at the school, the published oversubscription criteria outlined in the schools admission to school policy and the Local Authority’s Admission to Secondary School booklet:  https://www.rotherham.gov.uk/schools-schooling/starting-secondary-school  will be applied.

If a place cannot be offered, the child(ren) not offered a place will be added to a waiting list, which is maintained by the local authority

If you wish to apply for a place at a Rotherham school, you will need to complete the appropriate form and return it to the School Admissions Team (see address below) by the required date.
