Outside Group with HeadteacherThank you for considering Great Baddow High School for your child.  This section provides all the information you will need to make an application for your child to join us in Year 7. We appreciate that choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make.   We hope you will visit our school by attending our Open Evening or arranging an individual visit.  Many families like to do both.  We hold our Open Evening in the Autumn Term and offer tours of our school during the working day throughout September and October, by appointment.  We feel this is the best way to experience first-hand our outstanding facilities and to meet the students and staff.





The school pupil admission number (PAN) for Years 7-11 is 240 per year.

Application Process

If your child is in Year 6 of a primary or junior school during the 2017/18 academic year, you will need to apply for a secondary school place for September 2018 through the Essex County Council school admission process.

It is the responsibility of parents to make an application for their child’s secondary school place.  It is not necessary to wait to receive an application form or a letter before you apply.
