RECEPTION ADMISSIONS - A summary of the key steps you need to take to apply for a place in Reception for children born from 1 September 2019 to 31 August 2020.

The national closing date for on time reception applications is 15th January 2024. All reception 2024 applications must be made through the family’s home local authority.

For children living in Newham families must apply via London Borough of Newham. For children living outside Newham, whose family wants them to attend this school their application must be made through their home borough naming this school as a preference on their application.

Remember, parents/carers must apply for a reception place in this school, even if the child has a brother or sister attending this school.

Before submitting a reception application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2023 edition of the local authorities ‘We are going to secondary school  guide and find out information about the school you are interested in.


IN YEAR ADMISSIONS - If you want to apply for a primary or secondary school place in Newham once the school year has started a family must complete and submit an in-year school admission application. If a family arrives in Newham during the school year and their child needs a school place they must complete an In Year form naming their preferred schools. https://www.newham.gov.uk/schools-education/year-admissions/1 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.
