You’ve probably noticed that things have changed a bit. We haven’t finished updating all our pages yet, so some sections are still using this design. Please bear with us...

School admissions

School admissions


If your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013, your child is due to start primary school in September 2017.

You must apply for your child's primary school place online. For further information please view our Starting primary school in Southwark 2017/18 brochure.



If your child was born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006, your child is due to start secondary school in September 2017.

The deadline for submitting your child's secondary application has now passed you will not be able to apply online for your child's secondary school place. You must complete a paper secondary application form which you can download here and return it back to the school admissions team. Alternatively, you can request for a paper secondary application form from the school admissions team to be posted to you instead.

For further information please view our Starting secondary school in Southwark 2017/18 brochure.  


Drop in surgery

Please note, there will be no drop in surgery over the Christmas holiday period from 15 December 2016 onwards. The drop in surgery will resume as normal from Wednesday 11 January 2017 and every Wednesday thereafter.

The Southwark school admissions team will be holding a drop in surgery once a week for residents to access advice and support on school admission related queries. The drop in surgery will operate on a first come first served basis so there may be a short wait before meeting with the school admissions officer.

The drop in surgery will be held every Wednesday (term time only) from 9.30am to 3pm at the Peckham customer service point, Peckham Library, 122 Peckham Hill Street, SE15 5JR. For those families who may bring buggies, we cannot always guarantee that the meeting will take place in a ground floor room.
