How to Apply For a Place

Year 7 Entry in September 2020

For information regarding applying for secondary school for your child, please see:

Southwark Admissions

Offers will be made to parents/carers by the LA of residence on 2 March 2020.  Offer letters will be posted by first class post to all parents/carers who applied on time and parents/carers can also check on-line on the evening of Offer Day through the  eAdmissions portal.

Your child’s offer will be automatically accepted if you're a Southwark resident.  All offers must be accepted by parents/carers by 16 March 2020.

If parents/carers are refusing a place at a Southwark school they must notify the LA or the school direct by the 16 March 2020.

Waiting list positions are available from Southwark Admissions

After an offer of a place has been made, all applicants will be required to produce at least three pieces of documentary proof of residence, which includes the Council Tax bill, Child Benefit letter* and maybe a utility bill as determined by the school.

The home address is the address at which the student lives permanently and full time as the principal residence. It does not include short term rental or lease. Failure to provide current proof of address to the school’s satisfaction will result in an offer of a place being withdrawn. Where a child has shared care and lives at more than one address the school is only able to accept one address. The documentary proof of residence as determined by the school must apply to this address.

Brother or sister is defined as a blood related, half, step, legally recognised foster or adopted child living at the same permanent address (as set out in our Admissions Policy).

* If you or your partner are affected by the High Income Child Benefit charge and have decided to stop Child Benefit payments, HM Revenue and customs have confirmed that you can still request a copy of your entitlement reward letter despite the fact that your payments have stopped.  This document is needed as part of the admissions process and must be supplied to secure a place.  You will need to call HM Revenue & Customs on 0300 200 3100 to request this letter for Education purposes.
