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:
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.
If your child is not awarded a place at Cottingham High School because the school is full in Year 7, you can appeal against this decision by writing to Schools’ Admissions Team, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA. Please note that the school is NOT responsible for admissions in Year 7 – that is the responsibility of the East Riding Local Authority.
Applications for in-year admissions are also managed by the Schools’ Admissions Team, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA. The Admissions Team can be contacted on 01482 887700. Further information can be found here and below.
