Applying for a school place in our Reception Class
Parents must apply through the local council in which the child lives and complete the online application form on the eAdmissions website.
Under the Pan-London Co-ordinated Admissions System (PLCAS) all parents must list the schools they want to apply for, ranking them in order of preference. This is important, as potentially only one offer will be made and this will be from the highest ranked school able to make the offer. The Council will co-ordinate the admissions process to ensure that no child receives more than one offer of a place at a London Primary School (the highest preference for which they are eligible). It is therefore very important to put your preferences in the right order.
