As a community secondary school, our admissions are run by the borough of Lewisham.
You will then be told by your borough by email which school you can be offered a place. If the school is oversubscribed, places will be offered to:
- Children in Public Care (Looked after Children)
- Children of families with exceptional medical or social need
- Children whose older brother or sister is on roll
- Children who live nearest to the school
It is essential you update your borough if you move address in this time as you will need to accept your place within two weeks.
For in year admissions please contact Lewisham Local authority who will be able to support you with the admissions process:
