Siblings in 6th Form
* If you apply for a place in Year 7 and at the same time apply for a place in 6th Form for an older child who has not previously attended the school, even if the older child is offered a place, this will not be classed as a sibling link.
If you have a child who is already attending our 6th Form at the time of your application, who will still be there when a younger brother or sister starts the school, this will be classed as a sibling link.

The Local Authority is responsible for admissions to Egglescliffe School. The Published Admission Number for Year 7 is 235. If the school is oversubscribed, i.e. there are more applications for Egglescliffe School than places available, places will be allocated in the following order:-
  1. Pupils who are in the care of the local authority, or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements, or special guardianship order.
  2. Children who were previously in care outside of England.
  3. Pupils with a Special Education Need who are going through a statutory assessment and who have been identified as needing a ‘named’ mainstream school.
  4. Pupils who have a brother or sister permanently living at the same address, who are still at the school when the pupil begins. Please note – this criteria only applies to siblings who are of compulsory school age, not younger siblings who attend a nursery setting attached to a school (Primary applications only)
  5. Pupils permanently resident i.e. the address at which the child is registered for child benefit, who expresses a preference for that school (proof of address may be required) within the admission zone who have returned a Common Application Form by the closing date.
  6. Pupils with exceptional social and / or medical reasons for attending the school. A letter from the child’s GP or other relevant professional such as a social worker must be submitted by you with the application stating why your child’s needs can only be met by attending the preferred school.
  7. Pupils who live closest to a particular school measured in a straight line “as the crow flies”.

This policy is included in the ‘Admission to Secondary Schools’ booklet, which also gives more detailed definitions of the criteria. The booklet is available at https://www.stockton.gov.uk/children-and-young-people/schools/school-admissions-and-transfers/ and in all Stockton schools and libraries.

Throughout the year we receive requests for pupils to join Egglescliffe in different year groups. All such transfers are dealt with by the Local Authority and the Headteacher. Decisions concerning transfers depend upon the number of pupils already on roll in the requested year group. Due to increasing pressure on numbers, places are not guaranteed to parents moving into the school’s admission zone, if the year group is already full.
