The Local Authority will contact families of Year 5 children in June and provide you with information on how to apply for a secondary school place. In March of Year 6 you will be offered a place at a secondary school. At this point, George Pindar School will contact all families who have been offered a place with them for the following September.
George Pindar School usually feeds from a set catchment area that, as a general guide, includes children who live in areas served by the following schools:
Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admission Scheme
