Over the past few years, we have received more applications for places in Year 7 than we have available. We strive to accept each and every student, but due to oversubscription, some out of catchment applications cannot be granted on occasion.
Admission to Year 7
If you wish to apply for a place in Year 7, you will need to apply through the Local Authority responsible for the area where you live, even if you want a place for your child at a school in another Local Authority's area.
Places are allocated in line with the North Lincolnshire Council's coordinated admission scheme and we prioritise applications as follows:
- Children who are looked after by a Local Authority and children who were previously looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted or became subject to a residence order or special guardianship order.
- Children who live in the school's designated catchment area.
- Children who have a sibling attending the school at the time of their admission.
- Children who live closest to the school.
Our normal school admissions arrangements apply when a child is transferring from primary school to secondary education at the end of Year 6. Please visit your Local Authority website for more specific information on how to apply.
Applications for new intake students hoping to join the school in September 2024 will close on 31st October 2023.
Our in-year admission arrangements apply when a child is already attending another secondary school and parents want to move their child to Baysgarth.
If you want to make an in year application you will have to apply to the Local Authority responsible for the area you live. More information is available on the North Lincolnshire Council's website, and for those parents living within North Lincolnshire, the council will ask you to complete and submit an In Year Application Form. Applications should be submitted to North Lincolnshire Council's Admission Team.
We will then be informed of your application. Once we have details, we will issue a letter to families requesting the following information from their child's current school:
|Key Stage 3||Key Stage 4|
|Attendance Certificate||Attendance Certificate|
|Behaviour Log||Behaviour Log|
|Most recent Academic Report||Most recent Academic Report|
|Current Option Subjects & Exam Boards|
Once this information has been collected, a meeting will be arranged between the parents/carers, the prospective student and a member of Baysgarth School’s leadership team. The purpose of this meeting is to allow the school to gather all necessary information to support the prospective student and ensure a successful transition to our school.
An initial meeting and tour of the school will then be arranged once all information has been collated and received by the school.
If your child is refused a place at Baysgarth, either in the normal intake or as an in year application, you will have the right of appeal. Appeals are administered by North Lincolnshire Council.
