Admission to the School

All Reception admissions are dealt with by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and Reception applications should be made using the Common Application Form. The over-subscription criteria are:

 

  • Looked after children and previously looked after children
  • Children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)
  • Brothers and sisters attending the school
  • Children of school employees
  • Those living closest to the school

 

In exceptional cases priority can be given to children with exceptional medical or social needs. All other admissions are dealt with by the school. Our Admissions Policy will give you more information.

 

If your child has not been offered a place at the school, you can appeal against that decision. The London Borough of Tower Hamlets deals with all appeals for the school. Full information and the appeals timetable can be found here.

 

The school receives and decides all in-year admissions according to the above over-subscription criteria, and informs the Local Authority of all applications and their outcome.
