Determination of Admission Arrangements from September 2021

If you would like your son/daughter to be considered for a place at Putteridge High School for the new intake into Year 7 in September 2021, please apply via your home local authority for a place (i.e. if you live in Luton, please apply to Luton Borough Council).

The national closing date for on time secondary school applications is 31st October 2021. Please see the documents below for details of Putteridge High School’s admission arrangements for September 2021. Admissions Arrangements - for further details please click here.

We take a pride in being a very welcoming and inclusive school to all new members of our school community.  If you are a parent of a student of secondary age (11-16) and you want to know more about what it would be like to be part of our community, you are very welcome to make an appointment to look around our school. At the start of the academic year dates will become available to be shown around the school by one of our Senior Leadership Team and will be listed below.

It is always a pleasure to show visitors around - the general comment from visitors is that everyone (adults and young people) appears to get on so well together with a real sense of belonging to a community. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are not currently able to offer tours of the school, we hope to be able to do so again soon.

Once you have decided that Putteridge is the right place for your child, you will then need to make an application to the Luton Borough Council’s School Admissions Team. They can be contacted on:  01582 548016 or click here to go to the admissions website.

As soon as we receive your application from the Local Authority we will arrange a start date for your son/daughter.  We are conscious of how difficult it can be to be "the new student" in school and we therefore introduce new students gradually into the school and always ensure that they have some "buddies"  to take care of them whilst they find their feet. Throughout the whole process you, as a family, will have the support of your child's Head of House and Pastoral Leader. They will do everything they can to ensure that a mid-year transfer to Putteridge is as smooth and successful as possible.
