Moving to Secondary School

Moving from primary to secondary school in September 2020

If your child was born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009, you will need to apply for a secondary school place for September 2020.


If your child lives in Newham you will need to apply via London Borough of Newham. But if your child lives outside Newham, but you want him or her to go to school in Newham, you will need to apply through the local authority in the borough you live in .

We recommend that the families of all of our year 6 pupils attend as many of the Open Days and Open Evening at the schools across Newham before making a decision what schools to name as a preference.


To maximise your opportunities of getting a place at one of your preferred secondary schools name six schools with at least one being you local school.

Remember, you must apply for a place, even if your child:

·         Has a brother or sister attending the school;

·         Lives in the schools priority area (for Sarah Bonnell and Chobham Academy)

·         Attends a link school (for Stratford School Academy only)
