Quality Education Meeting Individual Needs

School Admission Arrangements *Please see below for Secondary School Open Events 2023 (for September 2024 intake)


Whether your child is starting at nursery, reception or secondary school, it is an important time in their school career.

You and they are probably looking forward to it with a mixture of excitement and worry. We aim to help make the move a smooth and simple one.

For information regarding this please click on the link below.

All admissions must be directed via Havering Council (the Local Authority) before contacting the school. After the admissions process has been completed and received by the Local Authority, they will allocate a school and notify that school. The school will then contact you (the parent) to arrange an admissions meeting and explain all documentation that must be provided. Our school admissions meetings are always arranged for Tuesdays. 

If your child has an EHCP then you must apply via the Havering Council SEND Team. 

If you are appealing an admissions decision or want to know more about the oversubscription criteria, this needs to be directed via the Local Authority.


Havering Council (the Local Authority) is the admission authority for all community schools in the London Borough of Havering.

This means that it is the Council’s responsibility to set the admissions criteria and make the decisions as to which pupils are admitted to this school.
