In London since 2004, the 33 London boroughs and some of the Home Counties operate a Pan London coordinated scheme 2022/23 (PDF). Every family must apply to their home borough.  This means if a family live in Newham they must apply through Newham even if their child attends a primary school outside of Newham or they are only interested in a secondary school in another borough. 

Remember, parents/carers must apply for a place, even if:

  • They want their child to go to the local school.


  • Their child has an older brother or sister at the school.

The law does not allow us to reserve secondary school places.


Before submitting a year 7 application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2021 edition of the local authorities ‘We are moving to Secondary School’ guide and find out information about the school you are interested in.  If possible look at their virtual tours.


Year 6 open days, open evenings and virtual tours
