In September 2021, the school will have 270 places for our new intake of students. Eckington School observes the Local Authority (L.A.) scheme of Admissions. Outlined below is a summary of the Local Authority policy on admissions.

A complete version of the policy can be obtained from the Admissions Department in Derbyshire (tel: 01629 537479). Parents have the right under law to express a preference for a particular secondary school for their child. Information about each school is available in each school’s prospectus which is published annually.

You will receive a booklet from the L.A. about transfer to secondary education. It is vital that you use the form in that document to indicate your preferred secondary school. This applies equally for your catchment area school or some other secondary school. Ensure your choice is sent back to the L.A. by the date indicated on the document.

An online application is available from the Derbyshire County Council website as well as downloadable supporting documents.

If your child is attending secondary school and you are looking to move them to Eckington School, please contact us to discuss the possibility of a place and arrange a tour of the school.

Please contact Rebecca Price, Senior Leadership Team link for admissions on 01246 432849 or
