We are pleased that so many Year 6 pupils wish to join us from their primary schools. However, as a result South Holderness Technology College is over-subscribed. This means that all admissions to the school are dealt with by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Local Authority's Pupil & Parent Services Department. The Head of this department is Mr Martin Hugill.
The Admissions Process
The Local Authority issue Preference Forms for Year 6 pupils attending the primary schools within the East Riding area. Parents are required to complete the form and send it back to the primary school, showing clearly the choice of secondary school.
Once all the forms have been collected the places are then allocated. Of course there are rules to be applied! Those families living within what used to be "the catchment area" are given places first, and then other criteria are applied until all places are full. The school's admission limit currently stands at 330 per year, although should there be places left once the criteria have been applied then the Education Authority will consider other applications, again based on set criteria.
Finally there is an appeals procedure.
If an older student wishes to join the school then applications must also be made through the LA.
