We welcome all prospective students and parents to visit the school by appointment. Please contact us if you wish to arrange a visit.

Admission arrangements are provided by Leeds City Council through the Children’s Services Department. The criteria is designed to accommodate parental preference to give as many people as possible a place for their child at a preferred school. For further information, please click here to visit the Leeds City Council website or view our Admissions Policy.

You can appeal against a decision to refuse your child a place at your preferred school(s). By doing this, you will automatically be placed on the waiting list for your higher preference schools.

In the meantime, you should accept the place you have been offered by contacting the school directly. This will ensure your child has a place in September and it will not affect your waiting list position or the appeal.

If you wish to appeal for a school in a different local authority area, you should contact the relevant council for further details.

Applications for Year 7 secondary school places starting in September 2020 are now open.

We believe that transition to high school should be
an exciting time for children.

At Wetherby High School we work really hard to make the process smooth and enjoyable. Transition starts months before students join us in September.

Our team visit schools to meet with students and discuss with their primary teachers the strengths and areas of development for each individual child. We invite students and parents to various events to answer questions, address concerns and allow students to make new friends.

Our ‘Day in the Life of a High School Student’ events have proven to be very popular with both students and parents. They give children a chance to meet new friends, explore the school buildings, get involved in lessons and meet their new coaching groups.

If you have missed our open evening and would like more information or to visit the school please contact the school by emailing info@wetherbyhigh.co.uk or calling (01937) 522500.
