All Other Admissions 

All other admissions are referred to as In-Year Transfers. All Leeds schools handle their own in-year applications for school places.


Once you have decided on preferred school/s, complete the ‘In Year Common Preference Form’ and return directly to your preferred school/s. 


Schools will write back to inform you whether they can offer a place. If a school is unable to offer a place, the Admissions Team will contact you to advise of the schools in your area and any vacancies at these schools.
