Essex County Council co-ordinates admissions to St Helena School for those children moving from primary Year 6 to Year 7 in a secondary school.

Parents must apply for a secondary school place in this instance by completing the Essex Common Application Form. This can either be completed online or you can use the printed form available from primary schools in September. For full details of dates, procedures and the online application process please visit

Parents can express preferences for up to six schools, both in and out of Essex, in the order in which they would like them considered. Parents will be sent, by Essex County Council, one offer of a place at the highest preference school that can be met.
