About Us

In Year Admissions

St. James’ C of E Primary School will be managing our own in-year applications
from 1 November 2021 until 31 August 2022.

At St. James’ Primary School we are committed to ensuring that we admit pupils through a carefully organised process making sure that pupils settle happily and make a good start.

If you have any queries regarding admissions, please get in touch by phone, 020 7237 3111.  We would be happy to show you round our wonderful school (by appointment only).

In-year admissions will follow the normal admissions criteria and school policy.  If there are no spaces available at the time of your application, your child’s name can be added to a waiting list for the relevant year group. When a space becomes available it will be filled by one of the pupils on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed in the policy. Priority will not be given to children on the basis that they have been on the waiting list the longest. We will notify you of the outcome of your application within 15 school days, and if required add you to the waiting list.

If your child is currently in Reception from September 2021, we have a few spaces available.
If you are interested in a Reception place for your child please call the office on 0207 2373111.

Further information and the Southwark application form is attached below, click to download it and then submit it to the school office. 
If you are applying for a place under the church criteria you must complete our In-Year Supplementary form, also attached below, and return this with the Southwark form to the school.
You should ensure that you have a copy of the Admission Policy (see below) prior to completing the form.
