Moving to secondary school

All the information you need for when your child moves to secondary school

Apply online for a school place

If your child was born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012 they will start a secondary-phase school in September 2023.

This move is not an automatic process and you must apply for a place at the schools you would like your child to go to.

Only All Saints School and Goresbrook School have a sibling link for secondary school applications.

The open evening for The Warren school is now on Thursday 6 October 2022 from 5pm to 7pm and not Thursday 29 September 2022 as published in our booklet.

The Sydney Russell School is now on Monday 3 October 2022 from 5pm to 8.30pm.

Important things to note

The online closing date is midnight on 31 October 2022. Applications received after this date are late and your child is not likely to get a place at an oversubscribed school.

Do not put your application at risk. You must read the admissions e-booklet ‘Moving to secondary school in 2023’ before you apply.

If you try to apply online and you cannot see your exact address in the list, or the schools you want to apply for are not listed, you must contact the School Admissions Team before 5pm on 31 October 2022 or your application will be late. 

Watch our presentation about the admissions process on YouTube.

If you have any technical difficulties when making your application online, the 'Online admissions helpdesk’ is available Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 5.30pm. Call 020 8255 5555 and select option 1.

If you still need help after calling the helpdesk, please email or phone us - our details are below. 

Results will be posted from 7pm on 1 March 2023.
