Year 7 Admission for September 2024

For all children born from 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013 inclusive, their parents/carers will need to apply for a Year 7 secondary school place for September 2024, unless the child is on roll at an All Through school (Chobham Academy, Langdon Academy or School 21) as they will automatically move into Year 7 unless they would prefer to attend another secondary school.


National closing date for on time Year 7 applications: 31st October 2023


National offer date for on time Year 7 applicants: 1st March 2024


All Year 7 applications for September 2024 must be made through the family’s home local authority.‚Äč


For children living in Newham, families must apply via London Borough of Newham. 


For children who live outside Newham, whose family wants them to attend a Newham school, their application must be made through their home borough naming the Newham school as a preference on their application.


Before submitting a Year 7 application we strongly recommend all families read the autumn 2023 edition of the local authority's 'We are going to secondary school' guide and find out information about the school you are interested in.  If possible look at their virtual tours.

We are going to secondary school:

Remember, families must apply for a place, even if their child:

  • Has a brother or sister attending the school;
  • Lives in the schools priority area (for Sarah Bonnell only)
  • Attends a link school (for Stratford School Academy only)
