Secondary School Places - 2021/22

For children born between 1st September 2009 and 31st August 2010

At the beginning of September secondary application packs were distributed to Year 6 pupils via your child’s primary school. If your child was absent, or doesn't attend a mainstream primary school in Hartlepool, you will have received their pack letter by post.

The application period is was between 1st September 2020 and 31st October 2020.

Before you submit your application please read the Education in Hartlepool Booklet - September 2021 carefully. The booklet provides information on the admission process, key dates and lots of information which you may find useful.

To secure your child's place at secondary school, you must submit your application (along with any supporting documents such as a baptism certificate) by 31st October 2020. If your application is received after this deadline, we will treat it as late and deal with it after the applications which were received on time.
