Parents urged to apply for high schools online
Published 4 September 2012
Parents of children due to start secondary school in September 2013 can now submit their applications. The deadline for all applications is Wednesday 31 October.
Parents can also get expert advice on how to complete their application and how to choose the right schools at Ealing Councils Admissions Fair on Friday 28 September from 10am 7pm at Ealing Town Hall.
Last year, all those who applied before the October deadline were offered a place at an Ealing school and 84% were offered a place at one of their top three schools.
The quickest, easiest and most secure way to apply is via the www.eadmissions.org.uk website. People who apply online will be able to find out which high school they have been offered on Friday 1 March by either going to the website or by registering to have it sent via email. People who apply using the paper forms will have to wait for a letter to be delivered.
All applications received after Wednesday 31 October will be treated as late. Paper applications should be returned to your childs primary school, unless they attend a private primary school or an out-of-borough primary school, in which case they should be returned directly to the councils admissions service.
Councillor Patricia Walker, cabinet member for Children and Young People said: The quickest and easiest way to apply for high school places is online. The eAdmissions website is secure and easy to use and removes the worry of applications being lost in the post.
Applications that are received after the deadline are treated as late, which could seriously affect peoples chances of securing their preferred school. That is why we are encouraging everyone to apply online and as early as possible.
