  Download a secondary school application form (CAF1)

You can save this form to your computer, complete it without printing it and email it to pupil.services@torbay.gov.uk. Or you can print the form, complete it and either

  •  take it to your child’s school
  • take it to Torbay Connections office (based in Paignton Library) or
  • post it to Student Services, 2nd Floor North, Tor Hill House c/o Town Hall, Castle Circus, Torbay TQ1 3DR

If you hand your application form in to a school or Connections, be sure to take a copy and get it date stamped when you hand it in. Keep this as evidence of your application. If you post your form to us, include a stamped, addressed envelope or postcard so that we can confirm we have received your application. Contact us if you have not had confirmation after 2 weeks.

Additional Information

You will be able to state up to 3 preferred schools and these can include schools outside of Torbay. Before applying you should read the TIPS 8 booklet. This contains details of the application process. The secondary supplement contains a summary of the admission criteria for each secondary school.

Because your application is late, it will not normally be processed until all the on-time applications have been processed. Please read the TIPS8 booklet for further information. If you have proof that exceptional reasons such as a very serious illness, hospitalisation or bereavement prevented the application from being made on time please email or write to Student Services immediately giving full details and supporting evidence. Any requests received will be considered on an individual basis.
