Apply for a Secondary School Place - September 2023

You can request a paper application by emailing school.admissions@sunderland.gov.uk or by contacting our Life and Family team.  Alternatively, your child's current primary school may have a copy of the application form.

We would strongly encourage parents/carers to view the admissions to secondary school booklet before completing their application. Secondary schools hold open evenings where parents/carers can visit with their children.
