Applying for secondary places to start September 2023
(1 November 2021 to 31 August 2022)
If you would like to change schools, or if you are moving into the area for example, you can apply for a school transfer, by making an in-year application.
The Red Kite Learning Trust and its Leeds schools are part of the Leeds City Council In-Year Co-ordination Scheme.
Appeals Procedure (Leeds Schools)
Parents and carers may appeal against the Trust’s decision not to offer their child a place at the school. The appeals are arranged by Leeds City Council. Appeals submitted for a [Reception or Year 7 place], for a child to start school at the beginning of the academic year in September 2022, will need to be received by Leeds City Council’s deadline to guarantee being heard before the new school year starts (see below link).
If your in-year application is unsuccessful, you will have the right of appeal against the school’s decision.
The appeal panel is independent of the school and council and the decision is legally binding. Appeals against a decision for an in-year application can be submitted at any time during the school year.
