In Year School Admissions (Transfers)

Hartlepool Council Admissions Team co-ordinate in year admissions for all primary and secondary schools within the town. An in year admission is when a parent wishes to apply for a place at a school that is not during normal rounds of entry (eg Reception – starting primary school or Year 7 – moving from primary to secondary school). Should you wish to apply to transfer to our school, please complete and return a form which can be found by clicking on the following link :

Where there are places available but more applications than places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admission arrangements, will be applied. Please see the school admission policy on this page for information on admission arrangements. Parents are advised to read the admission arrangements carefully before making their application.

If there are no places available, the child will be added to the waiting list. Please see the admission arrangements for more details.

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, but the aim is to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.

You have the right to appeal to an independent appeal panel if your application is unsuccessful.

You may also wish to discuss in-year applications with the local authority by contacting the local authority admission team at School Admissions, Hartlepool Borough Council, Centre for Excellence in Teaching & Learning, Brierton Lane, Hartlepool, TS25 4BY, on 01429 284368 or by email at
