Admissions Criteria

The Governors welcome visits from parents or their representatives before expressing a preference for the school. If they would like to visit they should make an appointment to meet the Head teacher who shows parents around the school each week in the Autumn term.

The Governing Body intends to admit 28 children to the Reception class each year.

Applications are made by completing the Local Authority Common Application Form within the designated time frame (available on Local Authority websites) and should be submitted to the parents’ own Local Authority or via the e-admissions website. Please click here to go to the Camden Primary Admissions website.

Please read the school’s admission criteria carefully before applying – the admissions oversubscription criteria can be downloaded to the right.

For applications under oversubscription criteria 2, 3, 4, 6 or 7, in addition to the Local Authority form, parents should complete the school's Supplementary Information Form and return it directly to the school by the same date. Supplementary Information Forms can be obtained from the school office or downloaded by clicking on the link from this page.

Note for 2021 applications onwards

The Office of the Schools Adjudicator (OSA) has agreed an amendment to our admissions criteria for September 2021 to take into account the closure of churches due to the coronavirus pandemic. The amended criteria are available on the right along with the letter from the OSA.

Please note that the last Sunday service before the closure of churches was held at Christ Church on 15th March 2020 and that Christ Church reopened for Sunday worship on 12th July 2020. For criteria 2, 4, 6 and 7, parents must fulfil the church attendance requirements set out in note 4 for the two years prior to the closing date for applications, with the exception of the period when churches were closed. For further information, please contact Ms Lo in our school office.
