The deadline for Year 6 pupils to apply for a Year 7 place at secondary school in September 2022 is fast approaching.
All applications need to be in by midnight on Sunday, October 31, 2021.
Parents and carers should have already been sent information about how to apply but full details are available on the Derbyshire County Council website.
Derbyshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Young People, Councillor Alex Dale, said: “Going up to 'big school' is a huge step for any child. As a parent you play a vital part in helping your son or daughter adjust to this important milestone in their educational journey.
"I wish you the very best and hope your family enjoys taking this next step together."
