Secondary Education


Preference forms are sent to the home address of all pupils in Year 6 by Hartlepool Local Authority (LA).  Parents are requested to express their preference for secondary school on this form which MUST be returned to the Local Authority by the closing date stipulated. 

Allocations for secondary school places are made in accordance with the LA’s admission criteria.  Failure to return a preference form will result in the LA allocating a secondary school place for your child, which may not be the school of your choice. 

Open evenings and visits to Year 6 pupils by the Admissions Team will take place shortly after your child commences Year 6.  

Further details on the admissions process can be obtained by contacting the Admissions Team on 01429 523768/523765 e-mail:
