Read our Parents Guide to Primary and Junior School Admissions 2024 to 2025 (PDF document) before making an application.

Which schools can I apply to?

When you make an application list up to four schools in order of preference.

  • Every address in the borough has at least one designated area school. This school is given the highest priority for admissions, and we recommend you include this as one of your choices.
  • You can use our schools designated areas map to find out which designated or catchment area you live in.
  • It's important to remember that if your child attends a nursery or foundation unit which is part of a primary or infant school, there is no automatic transfer or guarantee you will get a place at the school.
  • You can list any infant, primary or junior state school as one of your preferences, even if it is not in our borough.
  • If you want to apply to a private school, you will need to apply to the school directly.
