Find your nearest secondary schools
Find a secondary school, and get information about it: the type of school, contact details, number of places, faith, website, and admission rules.
Schools are described as:
- 'Community schools' use the Council's admissions rules to decide who gets a place, and aren't influenced by religious or other groups.
- 'Foundation schools' have more freedom to change the way they do things compared to community schools.
- 'Academy schools' are run by a governing body, independent of the Council, and can follow a different curriculum.
- 'Voluntary aided schools' are faith schools, with significant funding from their church.
