Apply for a Secondary School Place

All Powys secondary schools are fully comprehensive and co-educational day schools with an 11 - 18 age range.

We normally make arrangements for admission to secondary schools in the Autumn Term before the date of transfer.

The headteacher of your child's primary school will let you know which secondary school the children would normally attend, although you can choose another school if you wish.

Pupils must live in the allocation area of the feeder primary school to be in the allocation area of the secondary school. You should keep this in mind as it affects the availability of school transport.

The Secondary School Admission Round is for Powys learners born between 01/09/08 - 31/08/09.  The closing date for the admission round is FRIDAY 15 NOVEMBER 2019.

If  you  wish  your  child  to  attend  an  out  of  county  secondary  school,  you  will  be  required to complete a hard copy of the form.  This can be obtained by contacting -
