Information about how to apply for a place for your child in Year 7 will be available on the Peterborough City Council website on Thursday 12 September 2019.
Before you get started, it's important to check if this applies to your child. Children born between:

You will need to apply after the application round opens on 12 September 2019 and before the national closing date of 31 October 2019.
