Thank you for your interest in The Newbridge School. We would be delighted for your child to attend our school.  If you wish to apply for a place for your child/ren, please read the information on this page.

Whilst The Newbridge School is an Independent State Funded academy, we have commissioned Leicestershire County Council to manage and administer the application and appeals process. 

We welcome applications from students across the city and county, indeed we have a significant number of applications from outside the catchment area.


  • Parents can apply for a place by using the On-line Admissions system (paper forms on request) on the Leicestershire County Council website 
    You can contact Admissions on:
    Telephone: 0116 305 6684 
    email: [email protected].
  • Use the LCC’s ‘find a school’ search to see catchment maps for schools and a list of schools within your local area. The ‘Your Guide to Education’ section has all the information required for entry to schools for September.
  • Closing date for Y7 applications for September 2024 intake is 31st October 2023.
  • Results for the 2024/25 transfers will be made available on 1st March 2024. To get your results sign onto ‘Online Admissions’ using your user name and password with which you made the application, then click on the results link.

If your child has been refused a place in the school you have applied to, you have the right to appeal against this decision. Appeals to decisions regarding school places are managed by Leicestershire Local Education Authority. Details, including the timetable for appeals, can be found here.

The Newbridge School will only accept students for the appropriate academic year based on their chronological age unless there is clear picture of need for a different year based on evidence e.g. EHCP/statement of SEN


All mid-term (in year) admissions for students in years 7-11 must go through the local authority at
