In - Year Admissions

Please note - Leventhorpe is normally heavily over-subscribed in each year group.  We very rarely have any vacancies as the number of students in a year group would need to fall below the agreed admission number before we could offer a place.

Enquiries regarding in-year admission should be made directly to the school.  Continued Interest Lists for each year are maintained at the school. Any places which do become available are filled in accordance with our published admission arrangements.  To enquire about availability for an in-year request please follow the link below and submit your interest.
