Primary to Secondary School Transfer Arrangements
Choosing 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.
From 2015, Lewisham does not use banding in the allocation of secondary school places.
How to apply
If your child was born between1 September 2005 and 31
August 2006, you are eligible to apply to transfer to
secondary school for a place in September 2017.
All applications for secondary school places should be made
online at www.eadmissions.org.uk
If your address is not recognised when trying to apply online or you live in a new development then please contact the Lewisham Admissions and Appeals Team on telephone 020 8314 8282 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Further information about the annual secondary admissions
process can be
obtained from the Lewisham website.
