Starting secondary school is one of the most important events in a child’s life. As a parent/carer, you will no doubt have a wide range of questions about this transition.

If your child is currently attending year 6 at primary school, you will need to apply for them to transfer to secondary school in September 2018.

The Admissions process for children seeking admission into secondary school for September 2018 will commence on 2nd October 2017.

The timetable for the admission round is detailed below:

  • Date application packs available 2nd October 2017
  • Closing date for applications 30th November 2017 at 12 midday
  • Offer date 1st March 2018

How do I apply?

Applications must be completed by the person holding parental responsibility for the child concerned.

Monmouthshire County Council has an online admission application system, which is available for you to use when making your child’s application. The system enables you to view and amend your child’s application up until the closing date of 30th November 2017 at 12 midday. However now that the closing date has passed the on-line system has closed so you will need to contact the Access Unit on the details below for a paper application.
