Dear Parent or Guardian

Secondary School Transfers: September 2019

I am writing to you as your child is due to transfer to Secondary School in September 2019 and I have enclosed an Online Admissions – Secondary School 2019 leaflet.


This leaflet provides information regarding the timetable and application process, including dates and times for the Calderdale schools open evenings.  You are strongly recommended to read the full version of the Admission to Secondary School Booklet 2019, which is available online at  A copy of this booklet is also available to view at Calderdale Primary schools, Customer First offices and local libraries.


If you would like your child to be considered for a place at one or both of the Calderdale grammar schools, you will need to complete a registration form by 3 September 2018.  This is available on the website of the two grammar schools, and  Only one registration form needs to be completed, even if you would like to apply for both schools.  If you do not register, your child will not be able to sit the admissions test.

If you would like your child to be considered for a place at Rastrick High School ( under their music criterion, The Brooksbank School ( under their sports criterion or Trinity Academy, Halifax ( under their church criterion, a supplementary application form will need to be completedThese supplementary forms are available on the individual schools websites.


Calderdale residents only – applications to be made online:

Non Calderdale residents – you will need to apply via your home local authority.  Please do not complete a Calderdale online application as this will not be accepted.


If you require any help or advice, please contact the Admissions Team before you complete the online application. 

Yours sincerely
