Admission to Secondary School September 2017
If your child will be transferring to secondary school in September 2017, you now have the opportunity to express a preference for your preferred school. Please apply on-line at flintshire.gov.uk/school admissions and ensure you receive a reference number when the application is submitted. This reference number can then be quoted in the event of a query and also ensures the application has been submitted.
In order to assist you with your decision all schools will hold open days/evenings and in addition all schools will produce a prospectus giving full details of the school.
The Local Authority provides a ‘Guide to Education Services’ detailing the admissions procedure. A list of all schools is also available.
The Guide to Education Services and the open evening details are available on our website flintshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions. You will also find a list of frequently asked questions to assist in making your application.
It is important that you read the Guide to Education Services before completing your preference form so that you are aware of the oversubscription criteria and the school transport policy.
