If your child was born between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007 you will need to apply for a secondary school place. The application period is 1 September 2017 to 31 October 2017.

From 1 September you will be able to apply online. If you do this, we will be able to notify you of the outcome of your application by email on 1 March 2018. If you prefer to apply on paper, application forms will be available from your child’s primary school, Torbay Connections office or from Student Services (01803 208908) from 1 September. If you apply online, keep the email that will be sent to you to confirm receipt of your application. If you apply on paper, be sure to take a copy and get it date stamped when you hand in your application to your primary school or the Connections office. If you post it to Student Services, keep a copy and send a stamped address envelope so that we can confirm receipt. Contact us if you have not received confirmation within two weeks. If you are applying online, you are advised to register in September. You can always change your preferences by going back into the system any time before the closing date 31 October.

You should use the time between now and October to visit schools and to find out more about the way each school prioritises children for places. You are welcome to go along to any of the following school open days:
