How to Apply

In Leicester City and Leicestershire forms are normally distributed to parents of Year 6 pupils in their primary schools. Applications can be also made online. You should also complete a Supplementary Form for each Catholic school named in your preferences. The information on the Supplementary Form will enable governors to place applications in the correct category. Supplementary Forms are normally available from primary schools or from the relevant secondary schools. All forms should be returned by the stated closing date. Late applications can only be accepted in extreme circumstances.
