Transition into Secondary School


At Hunslet Moor Primary School we work hard to ensure that our Year 6 pupils, and their families feel supported and informed when applying for Secondary School places and that their transition to secondary education is well-paved through meetings and transition days. We ensure that we develop positive relationships with our many local secondary schools and academies and invite them to our Parent Consultation evenings to meet and talk to pupils and families.

We suggest that wherever it is possible, pupils and families visit the secondary schools and academies they are considering applying to ensure they have the chance to develop an understanding of the ethos and curriculum of the school and meet and talk to staff and pupils.

Applying for a Year 7 place for September 2020

If your child was born between 1st September 2008 and 31st August 2009 they should start secondary school in September 2020, so you will need to make an application.

You can apply online now at:

You have until the 31st October 2019 to complete an online application

Your home address will put you in the priority catchment area for a particular school and the letter tells you which school this is. It is the school at which your child has a higher priority for admission under the school admission policy, which might be the Leeds Admission Policy 2020/21 or might be the secondary school’s own policy. The admission policy describes how priority is determined and, in turn, how places are offered. It also provides information about what constitutes a home address, how late applications are dealt with and how offers should be accepted. It provides an overview of how the waiting list works. The policy can be viewed online at: 


Before the closing date of 31 October 2019 Leeds City Council advises you to:

  • read the admissions policies for each of these schools you choose
  • complete and return any supplementary information forms to schools who require them by the deadline
  • if you are applying on behalf of a previously looked after child, complete a priority 1a Supplementary Information Form
  • if you are claiming priority admission due to exceptional medical or mobility needs (priority 1b), check that your preferred school considers exceptional circumstances as part of their admissions criteria, and if so, complete a priority 1b Supplementary Information Form (SEN SIF)
  • attach any applicable supporting evidence to your application
  • complete your online application, including up to five preference schools
  • ensure that your application form is submitted and that you have received a submission confirmation email

Find out more information about secondary schools

Where possible please can we advise you to visit the schools you and your child are interested in applying to before making your application to ensure that you are making an informed choice. You can contact any school and request to visit, even if this is not part of an organised open day.

Please find information below about secondary school open days in September and October.

If you would like any support or guidance in making this your application or about secondary school transition in general please get in touch with Mr Crawford or Mrs Cloughton via the school office. We would be more than happy to support in any way that we can.
