How to Apply
Students should normally be aged between 11 and 12 years on the 1 September in the year of entry.
As from 1 September 2006 Landau Forte College Derby changed its status from City Technology College (CTC) to an Academy. As an Academy the College continues to be a state funded independent school. However, there are some changes to Student Admissions so that parents/carers now only need to make a single application for their child to attend the secondary school of their choice, including an application for a place at Landau Forte College Derby.
This application MUST be made via the Local Authority in which you live. For most applicants this will be to Derby City Local Authority. The Derby City area falls entirely within either Catchment Areas 1 and 2. However for those people who live within the parts of the Catchment Area 2 that fall within the Derbyshire Local Authority area, they should return their application form to that authority. Derby City Local Authority will be notified of those applicants by the Derbyshire Local Authority and Derby City Local Authority will then in turn notify the College about ALL the applicants for places.
Even though the College is an independent organisation, there are no fees to pay.
