Invitation to Apply Letters

Letters telling you which is your ‘nearest priority school’ are sent out at the end of October. You need to know which your child’s ‘nearest priority school’ is because it is an important part of many school admissions policies. 

Applying for a School Place

We recommend that you apply online for your child’s school place. You can also apply using a paper form called a Primary common preference form (CPF). Alternatively you can pick one up from a school office or contact the Leeds Admissions Team.

However you apply you can include up to five schools as your preferences. You should put these in order of preference (i.e. your most preferred school at number one, and your least preferred school at number five).

The address you give on the application must be where your child lives for the majority of the time.


You will be sent an email with your offer letter attached on 16 April 2018.

If you don’t receive an email by the end of the day, please contact the Admissions team on 0113 222 4414, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday or email:

You should accept the school place you have been offered directly with the school. This will not affect your position on a waiting list or your right to appeal.

If you don’t get offered a place at the school you want, you can go on the waiting list for other schools in Leeds. You can also appeal against the decision. If you applied online you will receive your offer by email. 

Waiting List

If you have received your offer but would prefer a different school you can add your child’s name to a waiting list before 28 April 2018 without going through the formal appeal process.
