Admissions

The secondary transfer application process begins in September.  The school hold an Open Evening and several Open Mornings in September/October each year for Year 7 entry. For more information, please click here. If you are unable to attend one of our Open Events, we will arrange for a member of the team to give you a personal tour of the school.  

Please note that for academic year 2019-20, the furthest distance place we offered on National Offer Day was 2007.38m from the school.

Parents are able to find further information about the secondary transfer process in Lewisham in the Education section of the website of the London Borough of Lewisham.

National Offer day is Monday 2 March 2020.


In-Year Admissions

If you are moving into the area or are interested in joining our school at any point other than the usual admission point into Year 7 then you will need to complete an in-year common application form.  You can find details on the process here.

Please contact our Admissions Officer for an informal discussion or if you require further information.
