Temple Moor High School is an academy which forms part of the Red Kite Learning Trust, which is a multi-academy trust made up of nine primary, three secondary and one through-school.

The Red Kite Learning Trust is the admission authority for the schools within the Trust and as such is responsible for setting fair, clear and objective arrangements and criteria for each constituent school. In doing so the trust has complied with the School Admission Code (December 2014) Equality Act 2010, Human Rights Act 1998 and the Schools Standards and Framework Act 1998.

Applications for places in Year 7 at Temple Moor High School for September should be made via Leeds City Council Admissions Team, who will notify parents/carers of decisions on places allocated for September during the first few days of March.  If a parent/carer does not receive a letter from the Admissions Team at Leeds City Council within the first week of March they should contact them direct on 0113 247 5729.

Once a parent/carer receives notification from Leeds City Council that their child has been allocated a place in Year 7 at Temple Moor High School, they should then contact the school direct to accept or decline the place on offer.  This can be done by calling 0113 390 0773 to speak to our Admissions Administrator or by emailing and marking the email for the attention of the Admissions Administrator.

Should a parent/carer choose to decline the place allocated, they will be asked to follow this up with a letter clearly stating their reasons for doing this and this can either be emailed to the address above or posted to:-

If you have not been given the school place at Temple Moor that you want you can appeal against the decision to an independent appeals panel. You can appeal for more than one school at the same time.

If you wish to appeal against a decision for a Year 7 place, or transfers in any other year group, you need to complete an appeals form from the Admission Team at Leeds City Council.

All appeal requests received by (deadline to be confirmed by LCC) will be heard within 40 school days.

Appeals can still be submitted after this date, and will be heard within 30 school days from the date when the appeal is received by the Local Authority, but this may not be before the end of the academic year.

You will receive at least 10 school days’ notice of any appeal hearing.

You must ensure any additional evidence you wish to submit in support of your appeal is received by the Admissions Team at least four working days before your appeal. Any material not submitted by the specified deadline may not be considered by the Independent Appeal Panel. You must also inform the Local Authority if you intend to call any witnesses or be represented at the appeal hearing.

Appeals against a decision for transfers in any other year groups will be heard within 30 school days of the appeal being received by the Local Authority.

Decision letters will be sent within five working days of the hearing.

School days are term time only. If an appeal is submitted in the holidays the 30 school days start from the beginning of the new term e.g. an appeal received in July after schools have closed will not be heard on the 30th school day starting from the beginning of September when the term starts.

In-Year Admissions

From September 2013, whilst Leeds City Council still have sole responsibility for the new Year 7 intake from the surrounding Primary Schools, all high schools were legally required to manage and process their own in-year admissions.

As a result of this parents/carers can now contact the school directly to arrange a visit to look around the school and request an In-Year Common Preference Form (ICPF), which is to be completed and returned to school. Alternatively, you can click on the link below to download a form for completion and return it to school. Please mark all returned forms and correspondence for the attention of the Admissions Administrator.
