Year 10 educational opportunities
Local authorities are required to write to all parents of Year 9 children with information about schools/colleges which provide a technical or more science-based curriculum from Year 10 and are within a reasonable travelling distance of their home address.
This process is for admissions which are outside the formal admissions rounds eg primary to secondary transfer.
