Secondary school places deadline approaching
Parents of Year 6 pupils in Pembrokeshire will need to apply for a secondary school place for September 2024 by the closing date of December 20th 2023.
Applications received after this date will be considered late which may have a bearing on whether the child gets a place at his/her preferred school.
There is no automatic admission to a secondary school, even if they are living in catchment – an application must be made.
Parents of pupils in Year 6 at Ysgol Penrhyn Dewi, Ysgol Bro Preseli or Ysgol Caer Elen do not need to apply as they are attending 3 to 16 schools and it is assumed they will remain in their current schools.
However, if parents wish to apply for a different secondary school they must apply within the deadlines noted above.
It is important to note that a school place will not be allocated unless a formal application is received.
The online application form can be found on the Pembrokeshire County Council website under ‘Apply for a School Place’.
Parents/guardians will be informed of the allocation of places on the common offer date of 1 March 2024.
