Main School Admissions

Admission Arrangements

Information about admission is set out on the Havering Council website. This will tell you all you need to know about Admissions. All reception children are admitted during the Autumn (September) term.


The Local Authority oversee all decisions on school admissions. It is important you complete the on-line application within the time frame given. This is also available on the link above.

In Year Admissions

Havering Council coordinates entry to Havering schools and will notify the school and parent/carer when a place is allocated. For entries during the school year, it is always a good idea that the parent/carer and child visits the school before applying. This gives us the opportunity to talk about our school and for you to tell us about your child. Information on In Year Admissions.

Please contact us to book an appointment.

Determined Admission Arrangements

Havering Council (the Local Authority) sets the oversubscription criteria and makes the decision which students are admitted. Applications from out of borough residents will be considered using the same admissions criteria. The law requires that no distinction be made between children resident in Havering and those resident in other areas. The law requires also that all schools must have admission arrangements that clearly set out how children will be admitted, including the criteria that will be applied if there are more applications than places at the school. Admission arrangements are determined (formally agreed) by admission authorities.​The determined admission arrangements for schools in the borough can be viewed on the Havering Admissions Information page.

Prospective Parent Tours

Dates will be published in the Summer Term for admissions in September 2024.
