Starting Secondary School in September 2019

Offers of secondary school places for September 2019 will be available on the national offer day - 1 March 2019.

Offers are sent to Rutland residents by Rutland County Council and how you receive your offer will depend on how you submitted your application.

If you submitted your application online, you will receive an email on the morning of 1 March, at approximately 8.00am, to advise you of the outcome of your application. 

The online admissions service is open from 00:01 on 1 March until 23:59 on 15 March for parents/carers who applied online to receive information about the secondary school place offered to their child and to submit their response to the offer.  You must respond to your offer by 15 March 2019.  

To view your secondary school offer from 1 March and to submit your response, please follow the link below.  This will take you to the online admissions portal where you submitted your application.  

You will need to log in using the email address and password that you used when submitting your application and then follow the instructions to view and respond to your offer.  When you have submitted your response you will receive a confirmation email.

If you submitted your application on paper, a letter will be posted out to you, first class, on offer day.  Details of how you must respond to the offer will be included in the letter.

Your offer will include information about school transport and the options available to you if you have not received an offer at your preferred school.

If you live in another local authority area but applied for a Rutland secondary school place, the outcome of your application will be sent to you by your 'home' authority - the Council where you live. 

An application may still be submitted for a secondary school place for September but it is important to bear in mind that some schools may already be full.  If you are a Rutland resident you can download and print out a copy of the Starting Secondary School Application Form or if you would like us to post a copy to you then please let us know.  You cannot submit a late application online.  If you live in another local authority area please contact your own Council for information about how to submit a late application for a Rutland school.

Each local authority is responsible for co-ordinating the secondary school admissions process for children resident within their local authority area.  This means that parents must submit an application to the Council where they live, even if they wish to apply for a place at a school in another local authority area.  For example, if you live in Rutland but would like to apply for a secondary school place in another county, you must submit your application to Rutland County Council.  If you live in another county but would like to apply for a place at a secondary school within Rutland you must submit your application to the Council where you live.

To assist parents we have produced a brochure, Starting Secondary School in September 2019, which explains the process of applying for a secondary school place and offers information about the secondary schools in Rutland.  It is important that you read the information contained in the brochure before submitting your application to ensure that you are aware of your preferred schools' admission arrangements (policy) and to check if school transport will be available for your child.  

If you have any queries about the secondary school admissions process please contact the Admissions Service on 01572 722577 or email admissions@rutland.gov.uk.
