We Are Going to School

School places are usually offered within 10 days. The place offered may not be at the school the family prefers as that school may not have a suitable place available. In-Year admissions are for 01 September 2021 to 21 July 2022 (Year Groups: Reception to Year 6).

For children living in Newham, families must apply via London Borough of Newham. This means if a family live in Newham they must apply through Newham even if their child attends a primary school outside of Newham, or they are only interested in a secondary school in another borough. 

Remember, families must apply for a place, even if:

  • They want their child to go to the local school


  • Has a brother or sister attending the school.

The borough is not allowed to reserve secondary school places. We strongly advise families to read the composite prospectus “We Are Going to Secondary School” below, as this explains the whole process in detail. 

Applications received after national closing day (Sunday 31 October 2021) will be known as late applications. These applications cannot be considered for places until all on time applicants have their places. For all popular schools all places are usually already offered to on time applicants before late applicants can be considered, so applying on time is really important.
