start content

Please find below a Parent/Guardian/Carer preference form for you to complete to register your child at one of Conwy's Secondary schools.

You can complete the School Admissions Form online.

Alternatively, you can download the form electronically below:

If printing, please return the completed form to your child's primary school by 8 November 2019. You will receive notification regarding your request for a place at the school by 2 March 2020.


Late applications

Late applications will not be considered until after those received by the closing date, unless you are able to justify the reason for the delay when returning your form. Late applications without good reason may result in disappointment if your preferred school is oversubscribed, as places will be allocated to applications received by the closing date in the first instance, in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria.

Important Information:

Please be aware that if you are applying for a place in any of the following schools, in addition to completing the School Admissions Form, you will also need to contact your preferred school to obtain a separate application form in line with their specific admissions criteria. You may also be able to obtain this form from your child’s current school.

  • Ysgol Eirias
