To apply for a place at Penistone Grammar School

PGS Year 6 Transition

Transferring from Primary to Secondary school is an exhilarating experience we all have to encounter; for most of us, the nervousness we naturally feel is tempered by the excitement of a new beginning with unknown opportunities. For comprehensive information on our Student Transition Journey, please visit our dedicated Transition pages.


To apply for a place at Penistone Grammar School 

For Standard admissions at the point of secondary transfer:
Details are available in the Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council booklet  ‘Admission to secondary school – a guide for Parents’  and online by clicking here

If your child is currently in a primary school in the Barnsley area there are two ways to apply: 

  • Complete the application form and return it to the Headteacher of your child’s primary school. 
  • Apply online by logging on to the Barnsley Authority website (as per link above) and follow the instructions.

If you live outside the Barnsley Authority or would like to transfer your child into a year group other than Year 7, or at a time other than at the standard secondary transfer point (ie within year, including Year 7), please contact Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council’s Admission Department (01226 773677)  to obtain the appropriate application form.
