Admissions and Prospectus
The school does not produce a printed
prospectus but a brochure about what makes St Michael's
different and our approach to your child's primary education
is available from the school.
The process of applying for a place at St Michael’s School varies according to whether you require a reception place (for a child starting school in September) or are applying for a place when your child is already attending another school.
As a Church of England school, the governing body determines the admission arrangements and decides which applicants are offered a place in accordance with its published criteria.

Applying for a reception place
Applications for a reception place in all Lewisham primary schools are co-ordinated through Lewisham Local Authority and should be made online (to make an online application, follow this link). Online applications may be made from September in the year before your child will start school. All applications must be completed and received by the Lewisham School Admissions Team by 15th January 2018. For those applying under the religious criteria for a place at St Michael’s, a supplementary form will also need to be completed and returned to the school by the same date. Supplementary forms can be downloaded by clicking on the link below:

Applying for an in-year place

Once completed, the In-year Common Application Form (icaf) should be returned to the address shown on the form (i.e. School Admissions Team, 3rd Floor Laurence House, 1 Catford Road, London SE6 4RU). The supplementary form (if applicable) should be returned to the school after completion by your priest or minister.
