How to apply
Applications for September 2020 start
Children born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009 are due to start year seven at secondary school in September 2020.
Use the eAdmissions website from 1 September to apply online for your child’s secondary school place.
You can name up to six schools in your application including academy or free schools and schools in other council areas.
The closing date for applications is 31 October 2019.
If you do not live in the borough, you need to apply through your own council and you can include Kingston schools in your application.
If you still need to apply for a school place after the Admissions website has closed in July, please contact the School Admissions team for a paper application.
When making your application in eAdmissions you should:
- Complete a separate application for each child if you are applying for twins or triplets.
- Tell us in your application if your child has a brother or sister (sibling) attending your preferred school(s) in September 2020.
Things to check:
- Certain schools need additional information to apply their admissions criteria and may require you to also complete a Supplementary Information Form. For example, schools that prioritise applications by faith. If you are applying for this type of school, please check the school's website for further information and to download a Supplementary Information Form.
- If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), you don't need to complete the application - see our information about Special Educational Needs.
