Secondary Admission September 2019

If your child was born between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008, you will need to apply for a secondary school place for September 2019. Applications should be made online through Newham Council.  Please speak to a member of the Pupil Welfare Team if you would like support with completing the application process.  We're more than happy to complete the application with you here in school.

The application window for applying to secondary school (for current Year 6 pupils) is now open.  Parent meetings will be held on Monday 17th September at 3pm and Tuesday 18th September at 9am - both in the KS1 Hall.  Please join us to hear how the application  process works and to find out how we can help you to complete the application.

If your child lives in Newham, you will need to apply through Newham Council. If your child lives outside Newham, you will need to apply to the local authority in the borough you live in - even if you want him or her to go to school in Newham,

how to apply:

Applications for school places can be made via the eAdmissions website.  By registering and applying online, you have the peace of mind of knowing your application has arrived.  You will be allocated a reference number, which allows you to log back in and check your application.  By registering online you can also start completing an application, save it and return to complete it at a later date.  You will also receive your child's offer via email on National Secondary Offer Day.

Newham Council are currently running a competition to encourage you to apply through the online form.  Five winners will win their child's Year 7 uniform.  See this year's winner on page 3 of the Newham Mag here.

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

  • you want your child to go to the local school
  • your child has an older brother or sister at the school you prefer
  • the school you prefer has a priority or catchment area and your child lives within it.

closing date:

The deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday 31st October 2018.  Applications received after this date will almost certainly result in your child not receiving a place at your preferred school.

national secondary offer day:

Parents will be notified the outcomes of their applications on Friday 1st March 2019.  If you applied online, you will receive the outcome via email on Friday 1st.  If you applied via paper application, your results will be posted via first class post on Friday 1st - meaning you'll receive them within a few days.  You will then have two weeks to accept or appeal the decision.
