If your child was born between 1 September 2002 and 31 August 2003 you must apply for a secondary place between 1 September and 31 October 2013.
You will be able to apply online if you return to this website on or after 1 September 2013. Paper application forms will be available from your child’s primary school or the local Connections office (based in the libraries at Brixham and Paignton and at the side of the Town Hall in Torquay).
If you want your child to attend a selective school you will need to complete a registration form (below) and return it to your preferred selective school by 13 September 2013.
Even if you complete a registration form, you will still need to complete the council’s application form during September or October.
