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 for high School is 31 October 2014.

Before you apply please download the high school prospectus and our step by step guide to making your online application. These contain important information on the admissions process and give details of the high schools in Ealing.

A paper application form can be obtained from your child’s current school if it is an Ealing maintained primary school or from the Schools admissions team.

Deciding on your preferences

It is very important that you look at each school’s admissions arrangements in relation to your circumstances so that you are aware of the order in which places are allocated at oversubscribed schools. You should look at how places were allocated last year to see if you have a realistic chance of being offered a place in your preference school(s). You should also attend the open evenings for the schools you wish to apply for. We strongly advise that you name your nearest non-faith high school as one of your preferences.
