King James's School


 Admission at the Primary Transition Stage

The Governing Body has responsibility for admissions to King James’s School.   

Currently there are officially 210 places in Year 7 & 8 and 186 in every other year group, though in agreement with the LA, we have taken up to 210 in Years 9-11 (2023-24)

This is part of a phased increase until 2027-2028 when the PAN will be officially 210 in each year group.

To apply for a place at King James’s School for September 2024, parents/carers must apply online between 1st September 2023 and 31st October 2023 using the Kirklees Parent Portal. For more information and to apply online visit:
