Apply – Year 7 2018

Apply now for a 2018 Year 7 place 

In our first year of operation, we will sit outside the Local Authority coordinated admissions process although we will be working closely with colleagues at the LA. 

In essence, an application to Derby Cathedral School is a risk-free choice for 2018 as applications are made in addition to the usual Local Authority process. An application to Derby Cathedral School will be considered entirely separately and will not affect any other school applications you make via the LA.

The application deadline for a Year 7 place at Derby Cathedral School has been extended to 31st December 2017, to coincide with the expected announcement of the permanent site for the school. Those offered a place at Derby Cathedral School will receive two offers from the LA on 1st March: one from their three LA choices and an additional offer from Derby Cathedral School. They can then decide which offer to accept. Only when parents/carers have accepted the Derby Cathedral School place will their LA offer elsewhere be allocated to someone else.

To apply for a Year 7 place at Derby Cathedral School for September 2018, please complete and submit the application form below.

Places will be offered in accordance with the stated oversubscription criteria as stated in our Admission Arrangements.
