The application process

Step 1

Your online application for a junior school place to start in September 2016 must be submitted by 15 January 2016.

Attending an infant school place will not automatically transfer your child to a junior school, you need to apply online.

Prior to making your six school choices in the application, you may wish to visit some schools. Schools often hold introduction meetings in the run-up to January 2015. Contact the schools to find out more information.

You are entitled to apply for schools in other boroughs. For information about their admissions and place allocations, visit the council website for that borough.

Step 2

Check whether a supplementary information form (SIF) is required - this information can be found on each school's website. All voluntary aided (faith) schools require a SIF. The form must be returned directly to the school, please check the deadline for completing the SIF form.

Listing a school as your first preference does not mean that your child will be offered a place at that school. Applications from children who most closely meet the admissions criteria for each school will be considered first. Read more about admissions criteria.

Order your six school choices carefully. We aim to give you only one school offer at a time. If two schools are able to offer you a place you will be offered a place at your highest-ranked school.

You will receive an email confirming the receipt of your online application.

Step 3

You can continue to make changes to your application until 15 January 2016. Please ensure you remember to submit the application and get a confirmation email by this date.

We will write and inform all parents of the outcome of their application on 18 April 2016. If you have applied online, you will receive an email with the outcome of your application on the evening of 18 April 2016. From this date you can also check online or go to

You should reply to accept or decline the offer of a place by 30 April 2016.

You have the right to appeal if you do not get the offer of a school to which you applied. You are strongly advised to accept a place at an alternative school in the meantime so that if your appeal is unsuccessful you will have a school place for your child in September. Your appeal is not affected by accepting a place. More information about the appeal process.
