Every year, local authorities for all voluntary-aided schools, free schools and academies will make their offers of Secondary places in Y7 on or around 1 March in the year when the child will be admitted (known as National Offer Day). Y12 dates are set by each school individually.  

The dates for independent schools will vary and you should consult their individual websites for more information.
