Primary to Secondary School Transfer Arrangements

Primary to Secondary TransferChoosing a School

You can obtain information about schools from their prospectuses and websites; then the best thing to do is to visit them.  All schools hold open days during September/early October so that you can visit them with your child.  You will be able to apply for up to six schools so it is important to look at more than one.  Every school has its own admissions criteria and you should read it to know whether your child has a good chance of being offered a place at any particular school.


Since 2015 Lewisham has not used banding in the allocation of secondary school places.

How to apply

If your child was born between1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008, you are eligible to apply to transfer to secondary school for a place in September 2019.
