How to apply and Appeal

 Please feel free to contact us here at Markland Hill School if you have any further specific questions relating to our school.

We are very proud of the comments made on applications for Reception places 2016 - here are a few examples

Secondary Schools

Dear Parents,

You will receive your 'Admission to Secondary school' information booklet some time in late July. It is posted to you from the authority.

You can either apply on line or use a paper form.

At Markland Hill, we have an 'Open Evening', in July where we invite all the local Secondary Schools to come here and provide information to parents and to the children. We invite parents and children from Years 4 and 5. There are teachers, from each school, to chat to you about their school and offer advice and any support.

It is always a great success.

We will hold another event in the Summer term. Watch out for the dates.
