Application to Start Secondary School
In the Autumn term of Year 6 parents and children should attend an information meeting at Gordonbrock, visit prospective secondary schools (daytime visits should be kept to a minimum).
Parents will need to make an online application to the Local Authority of their home borough (i.e. the borough where you live and pay council tax) at www.eadmissions.org.uk. Please click here for a Step by Step Guide for Making and Online Applications. If you cannot apply online you should contact the admissions team on 020 8314 8282 for further details.
Applications can be made from 1st September 2018 to 31st October 2018. Although applications can be made up until 31st October 2018 we recommend applications are made by the 19th October 2018.
Parents should apply for six schools, which can be within Lewisham or any authority outside the borough. Schools must be ranked in order of preference (you should have previously checked your chosen schools admission criteria).
When applying online you will receive an automated email confirming receipt of your application and a reference number. You will also be able to make any changes to your application up until 31st October 2018.
