Admissions and Transition


Our admissions policy is part of the local authority coordinated scheme. Parents/carers will need to complete an application form for admission into secondary school. The application form should be available from your child’s current school or can be downloaded at South Tyneside Council School Admissions webpage.

The application form must be returned either online or by post to South Tyneside Council’s School Admissions Team by Tuesday 31st October 2023 at 4.30pm. Any applications received after this date will be considered as “late” applications.

The admissions team will notify parents/carers which school their child has been offered a place at on Friday 1st March 2024 at 8.30am, via email if you applied online or by post if you completed a paper application.

If you need to speak to someone about school admissions, please contact the Schools Admissions team on 0191 424 7767 or email School admission arrangements can be accessed on the South Tyne Council Secondary School Admissons 2024/2025 webpage.
