Year 7 Admission 2020
Year 7 Entry
As a Local Authority Maintained School the application process for Buxton Community School is operated by Derbyshire Local Authority. Parents are required to nominate a first, second and third choice of school, and may apply online, or by post. Here we offer a general overview of the application process, but parents should consult Derbyshire Local Authority information for a definitive guide and confirmed dates for the current academic year.
The traditional deadline for applications has been 31st October in the autumn term of Year 6. However, information regarding the application process and the relevant dates for each stage of it is sent to parents of each child in Year 6 at the start of the autumn term, in September.
In order that parents and children have the best chance of achieving their preferred choice, we recommend that parents make every effort to meet the county deadline for applications.
