Main round high school admissions

Applying for a main round high school place

Children currently in year 6 are due to transfer from primary to high School (Year 7) in September 2015. If your child is currently out of school you will need to also make an in-year primary application.

Applications must be made directly to the local authority that you are living in at the time of application, regardless of the borough which the school is in. The deadline for applying on-time for high school was the 31 October 2014.

The online system is now closed you will need to complete a paper application form, we advise that you name your nearest non-faith school as one of your preferences. Please also download the high school prospectus for details on schools in Ealing:

  • You have proof that your application was submitted before the 31 October but has not been received by school admissions
  • You have exceptional circumstances for lateness (e.g. where a single parent/carer has been ill and the illness prevented the application being made on time or the family has been dealing with the death of a close relative)
