Then either select Barking and Dagenham from the drop-down list, or enter your postcode and then press the ‘Search’ button.

All our schools will then be shown.

To select the type of school you need, tick or untick the boxes under the heading ‘Admission phases’ for type of schools you wish to view.

All-through schools do not have a separate tick box, but these schools are for all phases (children aged 4 to 16).

Once you know which schools you want to apply for, please fill in the correct application form.

The form you fill in (paper or online) will depend on your child’s date of birth and when you apply.
