Admissions 2023-24

Please see our admissions policy here.

At Howden School, we welcome all students, and places at the school are offered in an open and fair way. Our admissions process is delivered in-line with the Equality Act 2010, the School Admissions Code, the School Admission Appeals Code, the Human Rights Act 1998 and the School Standards and Framework Act 1998.


Applications received relating to children with statements of special educational needs will be dealt with in accordance with the National code of Practice on Special Educational Needs. Where a school is named in a child’s statement of educational special needs, the school has a duty to admit the child.

Applications for Year 7

If you want to apply for a place in Year 7 at Howden School for entry in September, you will need to nominate us as your preferred school on the common application form and send it completed to your home local authority, or complete the online application.

Our normal school admissions arrangements apply when a child is transferring from primary school to secondary education at the end of Year 6. Please visit your local authority website for more specific information on how to apply.
