School Admissions - Secondary School

Children normally transfer from primary to secondary school at the start of the school year in which their twelfth birthday falls (i.e. 1 September to 31 August inclusive).

If you are a Torfaen resident, you can apply for a Secondary Year 7 placement for September 2021by completing the Online Admission Form with effect from Monday 14th September 2020.

If you do not wish to apply online you can download a copy of the Secondary School Admission Form here or you can obtain a paper copy from either your child's current Torfaen primary school or by contacting the Torfaen Admission Team on 01495 766915.

If you are not a Torfaen resident you will be required to contact your Home Authority to seek advice on how to apply.

The closing date for September 2021 secondary school admissions is Wednesday 25th November 2020 at midday (12pm). You will be informed of the decision on Monday 1st March 2021.

If however you wish for your child to attend a Voluntary Aided School, you will need to contact the school direct for the necessary admission arrangements.

Full details of the Authority’s Admission arrangements and related issues such as the provision of school transport can be found in the Parents / Carers Information Booklet.
