We also take students from a number of Hull primary schools.


Year 7 application process

For a Year 7 school place, you must apply to your home local authority, even if you are applying for a school in another area. You can apply either online or by using a paper form. Online forms are available on your local authority website:

Future intake

Once a place has been allocated in March by your local authority, we will be in touch via letter welcoming you and your daughter/son to Cottingham High School. Following this, we have an extensive transition programme supporting students and parents during this exciting time.

For further information about our transition programme, visit our transition page.
