#wathupondearne Latest news in Yorkshire: September 13, 2018 10:57:01 AM

Applications are now open for both primary and secondary schools for
September 2019.

The online system is available, and information packs are currently being
circulated to parents of all eligible children.

Parents can still apply online in advance of receiving their packs.

The closing date for submission of applications is 31 October 2018 for
secondary schools and 15 January 2019 for primary schools.

It is strongly advised to apply online as there are a number of benefits to
this method.

The system is easy to use, applicants will receive an email acknowledgement
of their school preferences and there is no form to take into school unless
the application is for a voluntary aided school. There is no risk the
application will get lost and the result of any application can be sent by
email, which is usually quicker than by post.

More information about the process is available in the Admission to School –
Academic Year 2019-20 – Advice to Parents booklet.

School admission figures for 2018-19 show that in Barnsley some 93.04 per
cent of children received an offer for their first preference primary school
and 95.7 per cent for secondary pupils.
