School admissions and transfers

Information on school admissions, transfers and appeals

Going to a new school is a very important step for your child. We want to make the process of applying for a school place as easy as possible for all parents and carers.

Our online admissions closed on 15 January 2015, but you can still apply for a place by completing the primary application form and returning it to the headteacher of your first choice school.

You can also apply using a paper common application form. Detailed admissions, appeals and transfer information is available by selecting the following links:

Details of all our schools are included in this list of Barnsley schools and academies.

The information on these pages is intended to guide you through the school admission and transfer process. Please contact us if you have any questions on 01226 773689 / 773677 / 773588 / 773502 or via email at
