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...

Secondary school admissions

Please note, as 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.

 Apply online using eAdmissions. Your child can start secondary school in Southwark if:

  • They are transferring from primary to secondary school in September 2017; and
  • They were born between 1 September 2005 and 31 August 2006; or
  • They are taught as a Year 6 child during the 2016/17 academic year

Monday 31 October 2016

This is the last day to apply online, but we strongly recommend that you submit your application by Friday 21 October 2016 in case we need to contact you. You must ensure that we have received your online application alongside any additional supporting information by 31 October 2016 by 23:59 hours. If you miss the deadline, your chances of being offered a place at a preferred school will be reduced.

Wednesday 1 March 2017

Offer letters will be posted by first class to all parents/carers who have applied on time.

You will also be able to view your offer details in the evening at http://www.eadmissions.org.uk/. You will need to log on with the same user name and password that you used to complete your child's online application so that you can view the offer details. 

Wednesday 15 March 2017

Should you wish to reject the offer of a school place allocated to your child, you must complete and return the notification slip attached to your offer letter by this date.

No action is required if you want to accept the school offered to your child.

For more information please read Starting secondary school in Southwark 2017/18 brochure.
