In year Applications

Applications which are received for places for year groups other than for Reception are subject to the school Admissions Policy.  If there is no vacancy, applicants are put on a waiting list.  The Supplementary Form is only necessary if you are applying for a Church place.‚Äč

If you are applying for a place and your child attends another Southwark school you must complete an in-year transfer form (see below) and have it stamped and signed by their current school and leave it at either site for the attention of Mrs. Brenta, who will contact you should a place become available or if we need further information.

Please read the flow chart from Southwark if you are applying for an in-year transfer which explains the procedure.
